Rural Reps Endorse Rob Teilhet for AG

Presser from the Teilhet Campaign

Leaders from Georgia’s rural cities and towns displayed their support for Attorney General candidate, Representative Rob Teilhet, through powerful endorsements today. The list of endorsers include:

State Representative Ellis Black (HD 174, Valdosta)
State Representative Mack Jackson (HD 142, Sandersville)
State Representative Sistie Hudson (HD 124, Sparta)
State Representative Debbie Buckner (HD 130, Junction City)
State Representative Mike Cheokas (HD 140, Americus)
Former State Representative Charles Jenkins (Blairsville)
Former State Representative Ron Borders (Valdosta)
Former State Representative Robert Ray (Fort Valley)

“It’s been an honor to receive the support from my colleagues who represent areas from the North Georgia mountains to South Georgia towns,” said Teilhet. “Today’s endorsements show that Georgians, from every corner of this state, want an Attorney General who will protect our children, prevent crime and fight public corruption. These influential leaders know that I will represent the people first and fight for all Georgians—north, south, rural and urban—and I thank them for their support.”

Today’s endorsements add to the campaign’s growing list which includes endorsements from the IBEW Local 613, Marshal Greg Countryman of Muscogee County, former legislator and U.S. Senate candidate Jim Martin, DeKalb Solicitor General Robert James, Civil Rights Leaders Representative Tyrone Brooks and Elder Bill Harris, the Chairmen of the Legislative Black Caucus, Senator Emanuel Jones, eight Democratic State Senators, and over forty current and former Democratic members of the House of Representatives.
