Drew Ferguson has polled higher than GA Senator Mike Crane in two recent polls for the GA-3 Republican runoff. A Meeting Street Research poll shows Ferguson ahead 45-36, while a Clout Research/zpolitics poll shows Ferguson ahead 40.7-34.5.
In addition, Ferguson has been endorsed by the Georgia Chamber of Commerce and the U.S. Chamber over Crane. From the Georgia Chamber of Commerce:
On behalf of our 40,000 members and their 2,000,000 employees across all industry sectors throughout the state, the Georgia Chamber of Commerce is proud to endorse Drew Ferguson for Congress in Georgia’s Third District. Each year, the Georgia Chamber strives to support those individuals whose priorities include advancing economic development opportunities and job creation throughout our state. We support candidates who demonstrate an understanding and appreciation for Georgia’s job creators and who will work to help grow our economy and opportunities for job creation. We are confident that Drew will fight to keep Georgia the #1 state in the nation to do business. “The people of the 3rd District deserve a strong leader and Drew has shown time and again that he’s a true servant leader focused on creating jobs and improving the quality of life for the people he serves. I am confident Drew will continue the same focus Congressman Westmoreland had during his tenure while serving all constituents to grow the economic prosperity of the 3rd district,” said President & CEO of the Georgia Chamber, Chris Clark. We are proud Drew has taken up the call to serve his fellow Georgians.
The U.S. Chamber of Commerce is also proud to endorse Drew Ferguson. “For 104 years, the Chamber of Commerce of the United States has represented the interests of tens of millions of employers and employees across America, and in the great state of Georgia,” said Rob Engstrom, national political director and senior vice president at the U.S. Chamber.
“In GA-3, voters have a clear choice between a true conservative champion who knows how to govern and another self-appointed conservative who will bring nothing more than empty talk and more gridlock. Results matter, not rhetoric. We are proud to endorse our friend Drew Ferguson: proven, conservative, and fighting every day to create jobs and push back against big government liberals. Drew is the only candidate in this race who is a true conservative with a record of getting things done. Georgians are looking for a real leader, and Drew Ferguson is that candidate.”
