Via press release from the GOP Rep. Jody Hice:
Free and fair elections are the foundation of our country. What Brad Raffensperger did was create cracks in the integrity of our elections, which I wholeheartedly believe individuals took advantage of in 2020.
Though I am encouraged to see the General Assembly taking it upon themselves to address some of the glaring issues in our elections, Georgia deserves a Secretary of State who will own the responsibilities of the office.
If elected, I will instill confidence in our election process by upholding the Georgia Constitution, enforcing meaningful reform and aggressively pursuing those who commit voter fraud.
Every Georgian, in fact every American, has the right to be outraged by the actions and, simultaneously, the inaction of our Secretary of State. Our state deserves a leader who steers clear of scandals and focuses on the incredibly important duties of the office.
If elected, my top priority will be ensuring every Georgian’s legally cast ballot is counted in future elections. I am excited about our campaign and I know together we can renew integrity!
Earlier today, Politico reported that Trump will endorse Hice as part of his campaign against the Georgia GOP. As a Baptist pastor, Hice once had a daily radio show heard on 400 stations. Hice was among the insurrectionist GOP House reps who signed an amicus brief seeking to overturn the 2020 presidential election.
