Mark your calendars for Tuesday, October 7 for the debates between David Perdue and Michelle Nunn AND between Governor Nathan Deal and Jason Carter.
The debates will be held in the huge exhibition building at the Georgia State Fairgrounds and Agricenter which holds about 5,000 people. Based on previous debates, we know the dems will be busing in very large numbers of union members from out of state to show support for their candidates in front of all the TV cameras.
The Perdue campaign is coordinating with the Gwinnett GOP and others to offer FREE transportation there and back, your ticket into the fair, and dinner. (The reason you need a ticket is that the Georgia State Fair is at the same time.)
On the first weekend in October, Victory Gwinnett was proud to have Sharon Day join us for our weekend walking push, but we’re even prouder of all our great volunteers who turned out and reached over 3,500 voters! Y’all are an amazing group of people.
But don’t think this is a once and done kind of year, with almost 400,000 registered voters here in Gwinnett alone, we’re still a long way from ensuring a conservative victory in our county for Perdue, Deal, and all our local candidates.
Sorry to interrupt your Labor Day Holiday weekend but…..
Mark your calendars now – the Gwinnett County Monthly Breakfast will be the place to be this Saturday, September 6th!
We have a stellar line-up scheduled including RNC Co-Chair Sharon Day, US Senator Johnny Isakson, Lieutenant Governor Casey Cagle and State House 81 candidate Jim Duffie.
With early voting beginning on October 13th, we don’t have a minute to waste. Representatives from the Victory Gwinnett Team will also be present to get you signed up to volunteer to make phone calls, walk neighborhoods and other exciting activities we have scheduled for the Fall.
ANNOUNCEMENT OF THE DEATH OF MICHAEL BROWN AND PROCESS FOR SUBSTITUTE NOMINATION FOR HOUSE DISTRICT 98
The Georgia Republican Party is saddened to report that Michael Brown, Republican nominee for State House District 98, died suddenly on Tuesday, August 19. Michael was a wonderful person, loving husband and father and would have been a great addition to the State House of Representatives. He will be terribly missed by his family and his many friends.
Michael had no opposition in the General Election in November. Under state law, the State Executive Committee has the option of making a substitute nomination. Yesterday, the Committee voted that it would fill the nomination and notified the Secretary of State of the same.
State Rep. BJ Pak of House District 108 in Lilburn was named a Rising Star by the Republican National Committee at their summer meeting in Chicago on August 7th. Three other Republican leaders also earned the honor. Congratulations BJ! We’re proud you represent us in Gwinnett County.
From a Georgia GOP Press Release:
“I am proud and excited to welcome Will, BJ, Amanda, and Evelyn as the fourth installment to our Rising Stars program,” said Chairman Priebus. “These four individuals embody the GOP’s message of freedom and opportunity and I look forward to working with them as we grow and strengthen our party.”
