Perry McGuire Rolls Out Endorsements From Legislative Leaders

This morning, in an email to supporters, the 2006 Republican nominee for Attorney General announced the endorsement of several members of the GOP's legislative leadership --including Senate President Pro Tempore Eric Johnson and House Majority Leader Jerry Keen-- for his campaign for a seat on the Georgia Court of Appeals.

Perry McGuire wrote in the email that "we are the front-runners in this important race for Georgia Court of Appeals."

"I view these critical endorsements as an important sign that Georgia leaders who make the laws and those who enforce them are ready for a rule-of-law, common-sense judge with practical legal experience to serve on the Georgia Court of Appeals," the Mcguire email said.
