State Sen. Hunter Hill Announces Gubernatorial Bid

State Senator Hunter Hill (R) has just announced that he is running for governor in 2018.







Hill has represented District 6 (which includes parts of Cobb and Fulton counties, including Buckhead and Sandy Springs) since 2012. He is the vice-chairman of the Senate Republican Caucus and chairman of the Veterans, Military, and Homeland Security Committee. He is also a former Army Ranger who served in the conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan in the early 2000s. He currently works as the president of a leader coaching firm, Tommy Newberry Coaching.

The full press release where he announces his intention to run is below the fold:


I am writing to share some exciting news with you. After much prayer and consideration, Shannan and I have decided that I will cast a vision to lead the great state of Georgia.

I have been your State Senator for over five years, and I am truly grateful for the support and encouragement you have given me in this role.

Now – more than ever – is the time to launch a bold, new vision for Georgia’s future. I have been thinking and praying about this decision for some time, and we are ready. My many years of diverse leadership experience in military combat, business, and politics provides a unique perspective that will guide Georgia to reach its full potential.

Like you, I have often witnessed the disconnect between what politicians say during their campaigns versus what they do once they are elected. This was clear to me when I first ran for office, and after serving five years in the Senate, I can tell you we are still in desperate need of conservative leaders who practice what they preach.

We need a more efficient and effective state government, and in the coming months, we are going to take our message directly to Georgians. I am dedicated to America’s founding values and principles of God-given rights, limited government, free enterprise and expanded liberty. I have fought to defend these values in Afghanistan and Iraq and in the Georgia Senate.

I would be honored to earn your support to lead our great state as Governor. To learn more about my candidacy, please click here.

Many blessings,

So I’m assuming Beth Beskin’s seat is about to open up as well.
