Fourth Republican Enters Crowded Georgia Race #GA01
Another Republican entered Georgia’s already crowded 1st District race on Monday, making him the fourth GOP candidate in the open-seat race to replace GOP Rep. Jack Kingston.
Bob Johnson, a surgeon and former Army Ranger, announced on Monday that he is running.
“I pledge to you that I am not going to compromise my conservative Republican principles,” Johnson said in a news release. “I am not going to Washington to go along and get along. I am running for Congress to bring about real conservative change.”
Three other candidates — state Sen. Buddy Carter, former Ronald Reagan administration official Darwin Carter and former Kingston staffer David Schwarz — have already announced they are running for the seat.
The seat is open this cycle after Kingston announced his bid for the Peach State’s Senate seat in April.
