Seth Harp’s history with the grassroots


Seth Harp’s history with the grassroots

Keep Georgia RED: Seth Harp – Chairman, Georgia Republican Party

Goldwater – Grassroots

Seth Harp began his grassroots journey in 1964 as a College Republican at Auburn University, when he joined the local Barry Goldwater for President Campaign – standing with grassroots conservatives in opposition to the liberal Republican establishment and their candidate Nelson Rockefeller.

When Seth Harp tells you he was there at the beginning, and comes from the grassroots not to the grassroots; his hard work for Barry Goldwater and the conservative campaign establishes that we can trust him because he has the political battle scars to prove it.

Vietnam – Grassroots

Seth Harp validated his grassroots credentials in 1966 as a commissioned officer 1st Marine Division, Fleet Marine Forces during combat in Vietnam. It was during his time in Vietnam – facing enemy fire – that Seth Harp learned the importance of liberty and freedom for the people, not the establishment.

When Seth Harp tells you he comes from the grassroots not to the grassroots, his Combat Action ribbon, Presidential Unit Citation (3 times), National Defense Service Medal, Vietnam Service and Campaign medals, Vietnamese Cross of Gallantry with Palm, and Vietnamese Honor Medal serve as his testament.

Building the Georgia Republican Party – Grassroots

Seth Harp joined the Muscogee County Republican Party in 1977 when he completed his service in the United States Marines and has been a leader in the grassroots of the Georgia Republican Party ever since.

In the dark days of Democrats dominating Georgia politics, Seth Harp joined with fellow Republican leaders such as Paul Coverdell, Newt Gingrich, John Linder, Bo Callaway, Johnny Isakson, and Mack Mattingly to lay the foundations for the Republican grassroots to grow in Georgia.

When Seth Harp tells you he comes from the grassroots not to the grassroots, his leadership in helping to build the foundation for the modern Georgia Republican Party, his standing up to powerful Democrat Governors and a certain Speaker of the House named Murphy prove that Seth Harp helped build the grassroots in Georgia and is the evidence you can trust and the leadership we need.

Volunteer Leadership Service in the Georgia GOP – Grassroots

Seth Harp has served since 1977 as a volunteer grassroots leader in the Georgia Republican Party:

Seth Harp has also been elected by his fellow grassroots Republicans to represent Georgia at three National Republican Party Conventions:

Seth Harp has not only attended county, district, and state Republican Party conventions across Georgia since 1977, but, in most cases, Seth Harp was volunteering to Chair the convention or serving as a volunteer legal counsel.

Citizen Legislator/Georgia state Senate – Grassroots

Seth Harp has been honored with the trust and support of grassroots Republicans across western and central Georgia as they elected him on multiple occasions to represent them in the Georgia state Senate.

When Seth Harp tells you he knows, understands, and will ensure the voice of the grassroots is heard, respected, and has impact at the Gold Dome, you can count on it. His service as Chairman, Veterans and Military Affairs Committee; Chairman, Higher Education Committee; Chairman, Judiciary Committee, Appropriations Committee member, Sub-Committee Chairman, Criminal Law of Judiciary Committee; and Member of the Insurance and Labor Committee have given Seth Harp the experience we need in our Chairman to work with our elected Republicans.

Seth Harp – From the Grassroots / Seth Harp – For the Grassroots

Georgia needs a strong and united Republican Party to both advance our conservative values and oppose the liberal agenda.

Seth Harp believes Georgia Republicans deserve a Chairman who will manage your State Party with the highest level of professional ethics, integrity, and objectivity. Seth Harp believes Republicans in Georgia deserve a Chairman dedicated to working with, and listening to, the grassroots of our Party.

Seth Harp knows it is the grassroots who deserve to have their values and their concerns placed at the top of the agenda because without the grassroots, there is no Republican Party in Georgia.

With Seth Harp as our next Georgia Republican Party Chairman, we can send a message to the Republican National Committee and Republicans across Georgia – the Georgia Republican Party stands for unity, conservative values, and puts principles ahead of politics.

Seth Harp: From the grassroots – for the grassroots.
