this is a running list of the Georgia officials I have contacted on Mike Huckabee’s behalf to garner their support. If you are reading from Georgia, please join me in doing so. If I get any responses I will also post them here. And yes I labeled the date as October of 08 so this remains a “sticky”.
-GOVERNOR SONNY PERDUE
-LT. GOVERNOR CASEY CAGLE
-SENATOR SAXBY CHAMBLISS
-SENATOR JOHNNY ISAKSON
– REP. JOHN LINDER (GA-7)
– REP. JACK KINGSTON (GA-1)

-REP. TOM PRICE (GA-6)
– REP. NATHAN DEAL (GA-9)

UPDATE – As of right now I am contacting the GOP members of the GA State House of Representatives. So far (including those contacted above) I have received only one reply, from GA Rep, Bob Horne (71st District which covers Coweta County , south of Atlanta). He supports Fred Thompson but believes Mike is a fine man and worth supporting if he wins the nomination next year. Even though it was not the reply I was hoping for at least someone has replied to me and I respect that. (October 7th)
I got a message Sunday night. from Rep. Ron Forster (GA House District 3 up in Catossa and Whitfield Counties). He told me that he would like Fred and Huckabee on the same ticket so Fred could be president for 4 years and Mike could serve for 8 years after him.
There is definitely support for Mike Huckabee in the Georgia House. I am thrilled to say that the support is growing and organizing behind Mike. The following are apart of his team already: Ed Setzler (Alpharetta), Mike Keown (Thomasville), Charlese Byrd (Woodstock), and Roger Hines (Former House member from Kennesaw). This is great news! (October 10th)
I received my first response from a member of Congress today from Lynn Westmoreland. He wrote to me and told me that he felt that it was unethical for him to endorse someone from his office and I greatly respect his viewpoint. (October 12th)
