To the Editor:
I am grateful to the nearly 135,000 Georgians who gave me their votes in the Republican primary for Lieutenant Governor. We placed a strong third statewide, narrowly missing second place and a spot in the runoff.
Two candidates remain in the Republican race for Lieutenant Governor. The clear choice is David Shafer. He and I served together in the State Senate. He is an effective leader, solid conservative and man of integrity. Unlike his runoff opponent, he has run an honorable campaign.
I am endorsing David Shafer for Lieutenant Governor. I urge my supporters and all Georgians to join me in voting for him in the Republican primary runoff on Tuesday, July 24.
Rick Jeffares is a former state senator and Republican candidate for lieutenant governor.
