Former Georgia Congressman and longtime conservative activist Bob Barr today announced his endorsement of Republican Jake Evans in the 6th Congressional District race, emphasizing his skills as an attorney, his track record fighting for high ethical standards in government, and his proven conservative principles. In a statement announcing his support, former Congressman Barr said:
“As conservatives, it is vitally important that we have sharp, tough-minded lawyers like Jake serving on the Judiciary Committee to stand up for our Second Amendment rights, for our religious liberties, and for laws that will crack down on the rampant crime across our nation,” said Barr, who served also as the U.S. Attorney in Atlanta during the Reagan administration. “Through the Mainstream Media, Big Tech, academia, and corporations, the Left will use every lever at its disposal to cancel conservative voices, and I’m backing Jake because I know he’s a true believer in conservative principles, and he won’t let these powers on the Left intimidate or silence him.
Lucy McBath is a puppet for Nancy Pelosi’s extreme agenda, and Jake Evans is our very best chance at defeating her.”
Evans welcomed the support of a respected Georgia leader.
“Voters in this Republican primary want a conservative they can trust to keep their campaign promises,” Evans said. “Having the support of Bob Barr sends a strong signal that he knows I’ll never waver on the principles that matter to us. Bob continues to fight for freedom to this day, as a member of the board at the NRA and as a conservative thought leader. I’m honored to have his endorsement.”
