  1. When you start your campaign with a verbal assault on someone who is not officially in the race; here’s your sign. What are you going to bring to the race other than a tractor and a Georgia license plate. Don’t go after Warnock by
    gutting” other conservatives.

  2. While Walker and Trump may have a ‘cute relationship’ so be it. For you city folk, I will tell you that Mr. Black did a superior job as Agriculture Commissioner, working along farmers, trying to make things better. As we all know, farming is about a lot more than watching the corn grow. I am not a Gary Black supporter at this time nor any other (for Senate) just yet, but i do believe we need a fighter more than a smiling face simply speaking the words all of us want to hear.

  3. Here we go again arguing about what a Republican candidate will do in office. That makes no difference if the candidate does not get elected. Kelly Loeffler would still be a senator if Doug Collins had not run against her and split the vote. Democrats worry about winning the election first, and then expect the candidate to toe the party line once in office. Chose a candidate who will get the most votes from Republican and independent voters, support that candidate to the max, and don’t stay home on election day because your choice is not on the ballot.
