Former 6th District Candidate, Combat Vet Endorses Jake Evans

May 27, 2022

Former 6th District Republican candidate, Byron Gatewood, a war combat veteran and Cobb County small business owner, today encouraged his friends and supporters to join him in supporting Jake Evans in the Republican runoff.

 “As the only combat veteran in the Georgia 6th District race, I appreciate the respect that Jake Evans has for our military,” Gatewood said. “Jake will always support our troops, not only giving them what they need to defend our country, but also stopping endless wars. I ran for Congress because, like Jake, I know America is worth fighting for. Now that my campaign has come to an end, I’m proud to support Jake in this runoff. He’s the conservative we need fighting for us to stop the radical Biden/Pelosi agenda.”

 Jake said Gatewood’s support continues the momentum the campaign has going into the runoff.

“Byron was an inspiring candidate because his commitment to serve his community and nation is beyond question,” Jake said. “I appreciate his friendship and support as we fight to Save America from the reckless policies of the Biden administration and Democratic Congress.”
