Congressman Tom Price, M.D., today leant his support to the candidacy of Jack Kingston for U.S. Senate.
Announcing his endorsement, Dr. Price praised Kingston as a proven conservative who will fight for Georgia.
“Jack Kingston has always been a steadfast leader in the fight for conservative principles,” said Price. “On a broad range of issues, he’s built a proven record of cutting wasteful spending and holding Washington accountable. He doesn’t shy away from making the tough but important decisions.”
“He’s tested, proven and won’t wilt in the face of pressure. The folks of Atlanta will be able to count on Jack Kingston when it comes to the issues we care the most about – expanding economic growth, reining in the power and reach of government, and replacing ObamaCare with patient-centered solutions. Simply put, he’ll be there for us. Jack’s a trusted ally and friend, and has a quality of character that will make him a strong voice in the U.S. Senate on behalf of Georgia families.”
Price, an orthopedic surgeon by trade, represents Georgia’s Sixth Congressional District which includes portions of Cobb, DeKalb, and Fulton Counties. He is the vice Chairman of the House Budget Committee and previously served as Chairman of the Republican Study Committee and Chairman of the House Republican Policy Committee.
Responding to the endorsement, Kingston praised Price as a leader in the Georgia and national conservative movements.
“Tom Price helped lead the Republican takeover of the General Assembly and has risen to become a thought leader in the national conservative movement,” Kingston said. “We have fought side by side to cut the size and scope of government, empower America’s job creators, and strengthen our national defense. I am honored to have his support in this effort to take our fight for conservative principle to the U.S. Senate.”
Georgia Republicans will select their party’s nominee for U.S. Senate in a July 22 Runoff Election.
