This 9th Congressional district is one of the most conservative in the nation,
and home to Governor Nathan Deal, Lt. Governor Casey Cagle and Speaker
David Ralston. The District is sure to be a focus for Georgia'a 2016
Presidential primary, and for Republicans seeking the Senate Seat currently
held by Senator Johnny Isakson (who is running for re-election). The county
chairman you elect will be the face of the Republican Party in this county for the
next two years. They cannot do their job without your help. And, if you are
frustrated with what's going on in Washington, as many are, then it's never too
late to do someting and get involved.
