Jake Evans, who serves as the Chair of the Georgia Government Transparency and Campaign Finance Commission, has announced his bid for the Republican nomination in Georgia’s 6th Congressional District. Evans joins Meagan Hanson, who announced on Monday, in the race. Other candidates include Harold Earls and Suzi Voyles.
“I’ve worked my entire life, starting in childhood, for Republican victories, and as a proud Georgian and American, I’m not going to stand by and surrender to the advance of the left,” Evans said in his campaign announcement. “While representing Georgia’s 6th Congressional District, my friend Speaker Gingrich led the Republican Revolution in 1994, and the patriots of this generation are ready to lead the Great American Comeback of 2022. And this Great American Comeback starts right here, in Georgia’s 6th District.”
Evans, who resides in Cobb County, highlighted the focus of his campaign, identifying the issues that the Northern Arc of Metro Atlanta cares about as education, public safety, national defense, and fair trade.” He said that the incumbent Democrat, Rep. Lucy McBath, who was first elected in November 2018, “only cares about one issue – taking away the Second Amendment rights of law-abiding Americans and leaving them defenseless against out-of-control crime.”
“We need change, and I’m here to offer bold, conservative leadership that delivers an America First agenda to restore the values that make this country exceptional,” said Evans. The announcement also referred to his experience on the Georgia Government Transparency and Campaign Finance Commission, also known as the “Georgia Ethics Commission,” where his campaign says that he “fought corruption and drained the swamp by holding powerful politicians accountable, enforcing fines on dark money groups supporting Stacey Abrams, and on former Fulton County D.A. Paul Howard and Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms.”
“As the representative for the 6th District, I’ll fight for Georgia, not against it like the radical Left, and we’ll once against have a conservative voice in Congress who has the courage to stand up to the Woke Mob and Cancel Culture and to fight for the conservative principles that made America the greatest country on earth,” Evans added.
