georgia republican party, Jack Kingston
Former Congressman Jack Kingston has defied the norm for political candidates. After his loss as the runner-up to David Perdue in Georgia’s U.S. Senate race last fall, Kingston has managed to continue rising in prominence and influence across the state.
Now, the Georgia GOP has announced that Kingston will take on one of the Party’s largest fundraising positions as the Chair of the Georgia Republican Party Foundation.
Taking the reigns of the Foundation will mean that Kingston has the opportunity to continue furthering conservative causes as an ambassador of the Party, while also bringing with him a wealth of donor contacts and fundraising experience.
“Given the disastrous results we’ve seen under 6 years of the current administration, Republicans have to win the White House in 2016,” Kingston said. “To do this successfully we have to field the largest grassroots effort this state has ever seen and raise the necessary resources to make this possible. I am committed to doing just that.”
Other major state GOP leaders like Governor Deal, Senator Isakson, and Senator Perdue are throwing their support behind Kingston as well.
“We are thrilled to have Jack Kingston on board and look forward to his leadership of the Foundation,” Party Chairman John Padgett said. “Jack has been working to grow our party for decades and this latest effort shows just how committed he is to that end. We will work together to take the White House in 2016 and keep Georgia red. Hillary Clinton, Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren or whatever radical, left-wing, liberal candidate the Democrats nominate must be stopped before further damage is inflicted upon our nation.”
Kingston replaces Vicky Willard, who is currently running for National Committeewoman.
