Congressman Tom Price Endorses Karen Handel For Governor

The following press release just hit my inbox:

Congressman Tom Price (R- 6th District) today endorsed former Secretary of State Karen Handel for Governor of Georgia..

"Karen Handel has demonstrated the strength, courage and leadership in business and public office that we desperately need in the next Governor of our great state of Georgia. Karen is not only the best candidate to win the nomination and take on Roy Barnes and the Democrats in November, but she will also be a wonderful Governor for our state," Congressman Price said today.

Price continued, "I know Karen. We have worked together on important issues for our constituents and our state. Karen will fight for transparency and accountability in our government and has the vision we need to create jobs, cut taxes, improve education and finally tackle the transportation challenges faced by so many Georgians."

"I am very excited to have my friend and Congressman join our campaign," Handel said. "He is a highly respected leader - not only in Georgia, but nationally. The addition of his counsel, as well as his energy and enthusiasm, will be invaluable in the weeks and months to come."

The endorsement of Congressman Tom Price is one of the biggest prizes on the Republican side. Price's endorsement will certainly help Karen Handel shore up her base in north Fulton.
