HUMAN RIGHTS ACTIVIST JOE BEASLEY ENDORSES TERESA TOMLINSON FOR U.S. SENATE
“I have spent my life helping people who live on the margins of society – those that are powerless and need someone to speak on their behalf. Teresa Tomlinson will be a tireless champion for the vulnerable populations not only in Georgia, but across our country. We need someone in DC who understands that we all can prosper – not just some. Join me in supporting Teresa Tomlinson for US Senate. She knows how to make government work for all people.”
— Joe Beasley
