The Canton Tea Party formally endorsed David Pennington today in Georgia’s gubernatorial race.
“Pennington is our Tea Party favorite,” said the group’s chairwoman, Carolyn Crosby. “Pennington stepped forward to sign our pledge to ‘do all that can be done’ to support the people’s call to stop Obamacare in our state and in our nation.”
Pennington is the only candidate for governor to sign the pledge to stop Obamacare. The Canton Tea Party selected Pennington based on his character, courage, core principles and leadership, Crosby said.
“Pennington’s outstanding record of leadership in Dalton qualifies him to serve as governor. We are proud to recommend him to Cherokee voters,” Crosby said.
Pennington has also been endorsed by the Coweta Tea Party, Columbia County Tea Party, Georgia Conservatives In Action, Populists Republicans of America, Georgia Conservatives for Change, the Education Freedom Coalition, and leaders of the Georgians to Stop Common Core.
