Cathy Woolard Endorses Teresa Tomlinson for U.S. Senate

Teresa Tomlinson is the only U.S. Senate candidate who truly understands the infrastructure needs of our state. Our statewide transportation crisis needs urgent attention from Washington. We have gone far too long without leadership in these critical areas. Teresa’s ability to tackle important challenges head on is one of the many things that distinguish her from David Perdue. Join me in supporting Teresa Tomlinson as our next U. S. Senator and let’s give David Perdue a speedy retirement.”
