Rick Jeffares to Resign from State Senate – “All-In” for Lt. Governor Race
Monday, December 4th, 2017
State Senator and candidate for Lt. Governor Rick Jeffares announced his resignation from the state senate seat to focus 100% on his campaign for Lt. Governor.
“Georgia faces big challenges in cutting tuition costs, expanding technical education and getting value out of our taxpayer dollars and I am going to focus 100% on addressing these challenges as Lt. Governor and as a candidate,” Jeffares said. “This campaign has taken off more quickly than I expected and there are so many requests to hear our message and exchange ideas that I can’t imagine being able to do this while still representing my district the way my constituents deserve.”
“I’m excited about Georgia’s future and believe that our citizens deserve a full-time candidate for the full-time job of Lt. Governor,” Rick added. “The 17th district also deserves full-time representation, and Brian Strickland has my full faith and endorsement.”
