“I’m Colonel Retired Eric Welsh. Several months ago I had the honor and privilege to launch my candidacy for Georgia’s 6th District. Unfortunately due to personal and professional reasons I had to suspend by candidacy and campaign, but what I haven’t suspended is my passion, commitment and love for this great nation — a nation I spent 27 years, with multiple deployments to combat, to lead and follow alongside some of the greatest men and women I will ever know, and this nation will ever know. But I am also a small business owner, a father and a grandfather. I am a father to a son currently serving as the 9th generation to the family legacy. We have serious problems this country is facing. We have borders that are open, we have out of control spending, government overreach on our civil liberties and we have issues around voter integrity. We do have a solution to these problems. That solution is Jake Evans, a candidate I fully support and endorse. Jake has a proven past performance and is a professional who has lived in this district a long time with his beautiful wife, Baylie. They, together as a team, will represent not only service members, veterans and their families but all residents of this district.”
Atlanta Tea Party endorses conservative trailblazer Jake Evans for Congress
The Atlanta Tea Party Patriots and its co-founder Debbie Dooley endorsed bold, conservative trailblazer Jake Evans in his bid for Georgia’s 6th Congressional District, Dooley announced today.
“Jake will stand up for the principles that will Make America Great Again,” Dooley said. “He’s the unapologetic, unbreakable conservative that we need to retake this congressional seat. Our group represents a true grassroots movement, and Jake is a product of the grassroots. He didn’t parachute in out of nowhere just to run for office; he’s not a weak-kneed member of the Establishment; he’s a conservative leader who’s shown up for years as a volunteer to fight for Republican victories. That’s who we need to go toe-to-toe with Lefty Lucy McBath, take back the 6th Congressional District and start the Great American Comeback.”
Dooley co-founded the Atlanta Tea Party in 2009, as part of a national movement to protest excessive government spending and taxation. In 2015, she became one of Georgia’s first conservative leaders to support Donald Trump’s campaign.
“As an attorney, Jake has led and won on one of the top issues of our time: election integrity,” Dooley said. “His work overturned two elections in the same race because he was able to prove irregularities, and he took the Trump campaign’s case in Pennsylvania all the way to the Supreme Court. That’s the kind of fighter we need. We won’t take back our country with weak candidates, and Jake has demonstrated the strong leadership we need. We’re proud to join this effort, and we encourage true, MAGA conservatives to get onboard.”
Former US Speaker Newt Gingrich endorses Jake Evans for Georgia’s 6th District
“Jake has reached the right conclusions on how to get our country back on track. Jake is a strong conservative fighter that will stand up for us in Washington against threats to our constitutional freedoms and way of life. I have no doubt he will bring solid, conservative values to Congress that put us in the direction of a smaller, more localized government. I hope you can join me in supporting Jake Evans for Congress.” – Newt Gingrich, Former Speaker of the US House of Representatives and Congressman from Georgia’s 6th District.

Jake Evans Announces Run for 6th Congressional District
Bold, conservative trailblazer Jake Evans today launched his candidacy for Georgia’s 6th Congressional District race to usher in the great comeback to retake America.
“I’ve worked my entire life, starting in childhood, for Republican victories, and as a proud Georgian and American, I’m not going to stand by and surrender to the advance of the Left,” Evans said. “While representing Georgia’s 6th Congressional District, my friend Speaker Gingrich led the Republican Revolution in 1994, and the patriots of this generation are ready to lead the Great American Comeback of 2022. And this Great American Comeback starts right here, in Georgia’s 6th District.”
“The Northern Arc of metro Atlanta is a thriving, dynamic region that cares about education, public safety, national defense and fair trade. But we’re stuck with a member of Congress who only cares about one issue – taking away the Second Amendment rights of law-abiding Americans and leaving them defenseless against out-of-control crime. We need change, and I’m here to offer bold, conservative leadership that delivers an America First agenda to restore the values that make this country exceptional.”
A lifelong Georgian, Evans is an Atlanta attorney who’s fought in the trenches for conservative principles. He’s the only Georgia lawyer who’s overturned two elections in the same race, he fought for the counting of only legal votes during President Trump’s re-election in Pennsylvania all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court and for religious liberties and for our churches. During his service as chairman of Georgia’s Ethics Commission, Evans fought corruption and drained the swamp by holding powerful politicians accountable, enforcing fines on dark money groups supporting Stacey Abrams, and on former Fulton County D.A. Paul Howard and Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms.
“Georgia delivered strong election integrity reforms, and the Democrats representing us in Congress have lied about it to score political points – even pushing boycotts that hurt the very people they claim to champion,” Evans said, who as an attorney is working on a case to defend the election law from the Democrats’ legal assaults. “As the representative for the 6th District, I’ll fight for Georgia, not against it like the radical Left, and we’ll once against have a conservative voice in Congress who has the courage to stand up to the Woke Mob and Cancel Culture and to fight for the conservative principles that made America the greatest country on earth.”
Married earlier this year, Evans and his wife, Baylie, live in Cobb County.
