Former GA-06 Candidate Erich Welsh Endorses Jake Evans for Congress

August 2, 2021

“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.”
