The Republican nomination for Georgia’s 6th Congressional District will be decided in a run off election that is scheduled to occur on June 21.
Former chairman of the Georgia Ethics Commission and the Trump-endorsed candidate Jake Evans, who came in second place in the May 24 primary, will face off against physician Rich McCormick in the run off because no candidate achieved the 50 percent threshold.
Jake Evans, the Trump-endorsed candidate in the Republican primary in the race for Georgia’s 6th Congressional District Seat spoke with The Georgia Star News about his support for law enforcement.
The Star News asked Evans if he had family connections with law enforcement and how they fared during the 2020 riots in the Atlanta area.
Former Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives Newt Gingrich released a video on Facebook urging the voters of Georgia’s 6th Congressional District to vote for Jake Evans in the Republican primary that is scheduled for May 24.
“I’m Newt Gingrich. I was Speaker of the House and we developed the Contract with America to get America back on track with solid, conservative ideas – balancing the budget, reforming welfare, cutting taxes – and I wanted to take a minute or two just to share with you about a good friend of mine who’s running for Congress,” he said.
Jake Evans, the Trump-endorsed candidate in the May 24 Republican primary for Georgia’s 6th Congressional District seat said, “We’ve got to finish the wall.”
Evans’ comments come as part of a wide-ranging conversation that he had with The Georgia Star News.
Jake Evans, the Trump-endorsed candidate in the Republican primary for Georgia’s 6th Congressional District, spoke with The Georgia Star News about election integrity.
“I firmly believe that without secure elections, we have no country. This is an issue that I have been fighting for since 2018,” said Evans.
The Trump-endorsed candidate in the May 24 Republican primary for Georgia’s 6th Congressional District seat, Jake Evans, spoke with The Georgia Star News about the importance of former President Donald Trump’s endorsement and what it was like to meet with him.
“I believe firmly that the America First agenda delivered four of the best years that we’ve had in a very very long time, definitely since the Reagan era,” said Evans. “I believe in secure borders, protecting our law enforcement, less regulations, lower taxes – all of which President Trump did.”
Georgia’s redistricting process has caused Democrat Incumbent U.S. Representative Lucy McBath to flee the 6th Congressional District, leaving an open seat.
McBath has left the race for the Sixth district and is running in the much bluer neighboring new Seventh district, taking on fellow Democrat incumbent U.S. Representative Carolyn Bourdeaux. The new GA-7 has a partisan rating of D+16. According to the FEC, McBath has raised $3,199,954.75 and has a war chest of $2,452,731.80 cash on hand. Bourdeaux has $2,005,771.81 cash on hand and has raised $2,406,048.45 for the 2022 election cycle.
