August 16-- Former congressional candidate Wright McLeod of Augusta issued a statement Thursday endorsing Lee Anderson in Tuesday's Republican runoff election for the 12th Congressional District seat. McLeod lost by a slim margin to Anderson's opponent, Rick Allen of Augusta, in the July 31st primary.
"On Tuesday, I am voting for Lee Anderson, and I urge you to do the same.
My campaign was a natural expression of my life-long dedication to Service Over Self. Lee subscribes to this same principle. He has always been a servant of his constituents. He has never run for elected office to enrich himself, and he understands that votes are won by trust, hard work and principled leadership.
This Tuesday's run-off is important to voters in the 12th District. It's important to Georgia. And it's important to our Nation. With a man like Lee representing us in Washington, we can look forward to beating John Barrow and restoring American values.
Please vote for Lee Tuesday, August 21st."
