Gurtler announces for Congress

In an exclusive for WJRB/WJUL’s Mountain Mornings, State Representative Matt Gurtler announced his intention to seek the 9th Congressional seat currently held by Congressman Doug Collins. With Collins challenging Senator Kelly Loeffler, the open seat has attracted State Senator John Wilkinson, State Representative Kevin Tanner, former Congressman Paul Broun and now Representative Gurtler.

Speculation continues that others will announce for the 9th District before the qualification period opens on March 2.

In making his announcement Representative Gurtler said:

I am officially announcing my candidacy to run for Congress in Georgia’s 9th Congressional district!  We did not expect this opportunity to come so soon. However, I’ve learned that it is not enough to simply support the Constitution, the Second Amendment, or love liberty… We must fight for our shared values and principles like I’m doing in Georgia.

Since Day ONE of my time serving in the Georgia State House, I’ve tirelessly fought to defend Georgia’s constitutional conservative values, principles and our God-given rights. Working alongside Governor Kemp, I’ve been fighting for Georgia to become a national leader in defending our second amendment rights. Congress needs proven limited government conservatives who will stand up to Speaker Pelosi and fake Republicans like Mitt Romney and John Bolton. I support President Trump’s agenda to bring our troops home, cut job-killing regulations, and defend the right of the unborn.

My decision to run for Congress does not come lightly. My family, close friends and many of you, helped me pray and deliberate over this decision. Ultimately, I made the decision to run knowing that I will be a champion for the Constitution, a voice for liberty in Congress, and serve the people of Georgia

Ahh yes, the king of secrets and suppressing those that dissent against him on public forums is going to continue running on “muh liberty” I know the people of the 9th are smart enough to not elect him. Most of his money will be coming from out of state, just like a Democrat, what does this tell you?


Gurtler is a closet donk?

Pretty much


I didn’t realize Paul Broun was running. Watching him and Gurtler fight for the rightmost chunk of the right wing of the gop should be fun.
