I trust Eric Johnson to be a real Republican Governor

Polls close in less than 22 hours. If you will vote in the Republican Primary tomorrow, please vote for Eric Johnson for Governor.
Eric is the Republican who is running a campaign FOR Governor and FOR his agenda on jobs and education.
His is the honest conservative campaign with momentum. Eric is moving up in the race while former frontrunners slide.
Eric is the conservative who can win August 10 and November 2.

I support Eric Johnson for Governor because over 30 years I've known him as:

  1. a genuine Reagan Republican. He was there as a Chatham County YR founder and volunteer for Mack Mattingly for US Senate and Reagan for President in 1980.

  2. a solid Southern conservative and lifelong Republican. Did you know that of the "top four" there are 2 former Democrats, 1 Southern lifelong Republican, and 1 Maryland (apparently) lifelong Republican? Let's nominate a reliable genuine Republican. Someone who knows Georgia and whose record is unequivocal and known to anyone who looks.

  3. a citizen-politician who maintains a real career as an employer and producer in the private sector. Eric is a veteran legislator and leader - knowledgeable on the issues and the state budget and bureaucracy. But fortunately in Georgia as opposed to DC, being a legislator is a parttime citizen role, not a fulltime profession. Eric has decades of business development experience - with the priorities our state needs.

  4. a knowledgeable person of integrity, leadership, and courage.As Congressman Jack Kingston said on July 12, "Eric is the kind of person who does the right thing when no one is looking.
    He's just that kind of person. In public or private, he's the same."

    Eric was the Senator who put state legislators tax filing records under the bright spotlight - to be sure those who vote on taxes pay their taxes.
    Eric led the successful fight to pass comprehensive ethics reform - restricting lobbying by ex-legislators and agency heads; increasing disclosure; providing whistle blower protection and more. It raised Ga from 26th to 6th in the nation according to the nonpartisan Center for Public Integrity's Ethics Report Card.
    Eric is the only Republican who has disclosed his income tax returns.
    And you can count on Eric to  have the courage of his convictions.

As a former state senator from Savannah running in a field with two statewide officials from metro Atlanta, he has had to build, earn, and buy name recognition. 
He's doing it. With Karen Handel slinging lipstick at Deal and Oxendine and Deal shooting back, Eric is the one running a campaign on issues, credibility, and character.
His target is not the other Republicans. It's Roy Barnes and the oppressive agenda that  Obama/Reid/Pelosi are forcing on states, citizens, and businesses. 
Please join me in supporting Eric Johnson - an educated, knowledgeable, smart, capable person who handles challenges with directness, grace, and courage.
If you've already voted, please ask or remind at least TWO other people to vote for him too. Don't stop until 7:00 pm Tuesday! Every vote is important.
