Georgia’s Insurance Commissioner, Ralph Hudgens, has endorsed Jay Florence in the race to succeed him. Hudgens declined to run for a third term this year. The press release by Hudgens (distributed by the Florence campaign) follows:
I am proud to announce my endorsement of Jay Florence for Insurance Commissioner.
Jay is a strong conservative with the right experience and a proven track record of real accomplishment. He has worked with me to combat insurance fraud and oppose President Obama’s takeover of our health insurance system.
As an Enforcement Attorney, Legislative Liaison, and Deputy Commissioner at the Department of Insurance, Jay Florence proved that he is a conservative and an effective leader.
Jay has raised almost seven times as much as his next closest competitor in the Republican primary. He has garnered support from people all across this State, and I hope you will join me in supporting him and voting for him in the Republican Primary on May 22nd!
Ralph T. Hudgens
State of Georgia
