February 5--  A fourth candidate is running in the Republican primary election in Georgia's 12th Congressional District.

{mosimage}Two-term state Representative Delvis Dutton made the announcement Wednesday afternoon in his hometown of Glennville where he was introduced by his high school history teacher at Pinewood Christian Academy, Pastor Joe Eason (Left) and joined by his wife, Danielle, daughter, Carrington and son, Bryson.

"This is a man who loves people.  He loves his family.  He loves his God and he loves his church and he loves this country," Eason said.

Dutton made a short appeal to supporters to help him go to Washington, "We all know that Washington is broken and we're not going to fix it by sending the same people to the table," he said.

The young state representative believes he is called to run for Congress.

"I ran for the House because of a calling I had.  I started a well drilling company when I was 22 years old while going to Georgia Southern and working at UPS.  All I ever wanted was to be the Daddy that I had and run my business.

"Dealing with the red tape and the government involvement in the business everytime you turn around, I finally had a calling to it that I had to answer to at least be able to look at my children for the rest of their lives and know that I did everything I could.  We'll take the same thing we've been doing in Atlanta and take that to D.C. and try to do the best thing for this district.

"I want to address the problems we have with the federal budget, the $17 trillion dollars in debt and the destruction of Obamacare," he said.

Dutton joins Macon nurse Diane Vann, who announced her intentions to run last week, businessman Rick Allen and former Capitol Hill staffer John Stone, both of Augusta, in the May 20th Republican Primary.

The winner will face Democrat incumbent John Barrow in November.
