A battle is starting to unravel in the race to replace Tom Price, where (at least) two candidates are fighting to prove that they will provide the greatest support to President Trump if elected to Congress.
In a statement, he referred to the former Johns Creek Councilman as a “false prophet” who has not stood behind the president as long as he has.
“Today, another the false prophet has been exposed. Bob Gray was one of countless snarky nobodies putting out Never-Trump yard signs in 2016 while I was in the trenches leading the President’s army to success in Georgia,” LeVell said. “I have supported President Trump and his policies since he came down that escalator in 2015. I will use my relationship with the President to stand up for the People and only the People – not the Special Interests or the PACs like my opponents.”

Gray’s campaign responded with a video of Trump supporters standing behind the candidate’s “MAGA” credentials.
“While some Republicans sat on their hands and did nothing, Bob was there supporting Donald Trump to Make America Great Again,” said one supporter.
A February zpolitics/Clout Research poll found that Democrat Ossoff leads in the special election with 32 percent of voter support. Behind him is former Handel, who holds 25 percent support, while Gray was favored by 11 percent of respondents. The poll also included former State Senator Judson Hill (nine percent), former State Senator Dan Moody (two percent), and Trump diversity coalition leader Bruce LeVell (one percent).
The CD-6 special election takes place on April 18.
