U S Senate Candidates

Eugene Yu: Eugene is continuing to hit the campaign trail hard. More and more supporters are hopping on to the “Yu Crew” bandwagon as they come to realize this veteran, former police officer, and businessman has the common sense Washington needs.

Paul Broun 

Paul Broun

As the true conservative in the race for US Senate, Dr. Broun has been leading efforts to repeal Obamacare, cut spending, and rein in out-of-control government. He has introduced more targeted spending cuts than any other Member of Congress, has authored the strongest Balanced Budget Amendment in Congress, and has put forward legislation which would not only repeal Obamacare, but replace it with patient-centered, market-based reforms. He is the true conservative in the race, and is the only candidate with a proven, consistent record.

Dr. Bob Johnson

First Congressional District candidate, Dr. Bob Johnson, Savannah surgeon, retired Army Ranger and 26 year Army Veteran was endorsed by national and local Veteran leaders last month. Dr. Bob Johnson also held a veterans forum Savannah immediately following a press conference announcing the endorsements. The Veterans forum was organized by Dr. Johnson to provide his fellow Veterans an opportunity to voice their concerns and ideas.

Dr. Johnson said the following about the Veterans forum, “I want to thank the nearly two dozen Veterans who joined me today to offer their thoughts, concerns and ideas about America and the issue facing Veterans, and military families. As a Veteran and a military parent seeking to represent a district with four major military installations, Veterans, defense and military family issues will be some of my top priorities should I be elected to Congress.”

At the forum, two prominent Savannah area Veteran leaders endorsed Dr. Bob Johnson for Congress: Dr. Wanda Kay North and Chief Roy Pike. These endorsements come on the heels of Former Veterans Affairs Secretary Anthony Principi’s endorsement of Dr. Johnson earlier that week.

If we want a true conservative leader, a doctor who will fight to fully repeal ObamaCare and an Army Ranger who will stand up for our Veterans and military, now is the time to act!  Bob JohnsonVolunteer to join the team!

He has been instrumental in advancing the cause of freedom in Georgia by standing up and fighting for property rights, lower taxes, a jobs-friendly business climate, free market principles and eliminating unnecessary government spending.
