The Marietta Daily Journal – Push for BRT is a roll of the dice for Lee

FORMER state GOP Chairwoman Sue Everhart of east Cobb has endorsed Jack Kingston in the runoff race for U.S. Senate.

“Jack Kingston has been in the trenches with Georgia Republicans for over three decades fighting for the causes you and I believe in,” she said. “He is one of us, a lifelong Georgia Republican with a proven conservative record of service.”

THE JULY 8 CANDIDATE FORUM co-sponsored by The Acworth Business Association and the Cobb Chamber of Commerce is more than two weeks away, but the sniping is already well under way between District 1 Cobb Commission candidates Bill Byrne and Bob Weatherford.

“I will debate him anytime, anywhere and under any circumstances,” Byrne told AT this week. “He is John Loud’s candidate, and I would think Loud is getting tired of seeing Weatherford get his ass kicked. But if he wants to go into Acworth and do that, I’ll be more than happy to oblige.”

Loud is owner of Loud Security and is managing Weatherford’s campaign. Loud has become somewhat of a controversial figure as of late thanks to his high-profile role boosting the Atlanta Braves’ move to Cobb.

Byrne and Weatherford will meet in the July 22 GOP Primary runoff for the District 1 seat.

Weatherford told AT that Byrne’s comments were “typical Byrne. He also said I would be last in the election, and that didn’t prove right either. So you have to take what he says with a grain of salt.”
