Senator Michael Williams (R-Cumming) was one of the, if not *the*, first elected officials to hitch his wagon to the #TrumpTrain. His loyalty hasn’t earned him a cabinet position, but perhaps he’s banking that the #TrumpTrain will have a stop somewhere over on West Paces Ferry Road.
Earlier this week, Mike Hassinger mentioned how Duane Chapman, a.k.a Dog the Bounty Hunter, has been hounding Georgians to back Senator Williams’ SB 254 that (as of legislative day 38) is stuck in committee.
It’s been speculated that the Senator is aspiring for higher office of some sort. The “some sort” has been assumed to be governor, but nothing concrete…until this picture from yesterday afternoon popped up on Facebook:
It’s not “official”, but it seems awfully close when supporter say that you’re running for governor.
Note that former Dalton Mayor David Pennington, who ran against Governor Nathan Deal in the 2014 GOP primary, is joining in on the fun as an apparent supporter of Senator Williams.
Williams has been traveling around to different areas of Trump Country including Dalton and Gilmer County no doubt wanting to capitalize bigly on Trump’s popularity in conservative north Georgia going into the 2018 gubernatorial race.
I hear President Donald Trump does great robocalls. The best.
