From Jack Kingston Senate:
Barbara Dooley today endorsed Jack Kingston for the May 20 Republican Primary for United States Senate.
A political activist, media personality, and businesswoman, Dooley cited Kingston’s business background and deep-rooted principles in her reasoning for backing his candidacy.
“Jack Kingston is a man of principle and that’s sorely lacking in Washington right now,”she said. “When Jack gives you his word, you can count on him. He always returns calls and his door is always open.”
“With his business experience, Jack Kingston knows what we need to get our economy going again and create jobs,” she continued. “He has a 100 percent small business voting record.”
Dooley, wife of longtime UGA Football Coach and Athletic Director Vince Dooley, makes her home in Athens and is involved in many civic, charitable, and political causes.
“Barbara and Vince Dooley embody the best in Georgia,” said Kingston. “I cannot thank them enough for their support, for all they have done for our state, and for their friendship with Libby, me, and our family personally.”
Kingston is a graduate of the University of Georgia where he earned a degree in economics. He met his wife Libby while serving as President of the school’s College Republicans.
After college, he moved to Savannah where he first worked at the port before taking a job selling agribusiness and property-casualty insurance all across Georgia. He helped grow a small business into one of the largest privately held insurance brokerages in the country.
Kingston has established himself as a pro-business, small government conservative in Congress who is able to get things done while staying true to his principles.
The Republican Senate Primary will be held on May 20. Absentee ballots are currently available and in person early voting is underway at county board of registrars. For more information visitwww.JackKingston.org/vote.
