FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
“We are working hard to send Teresa to the US Senate. We’ve been around Georgia politics for some time and know that Teresa is the right combination of experience, smarts and values. She is principled, but pragmatic. As evidenced by her accomplishments during her eight years as Mayor of Columbus, Teresa has demonstrated her ability to pull together people with differing points of view and build coalitions from neighborhood groups to the business community. With her deep Georgia roots, extensive resume, gravitas and tireless energy, she is the best candidate to represent Georgia and bring about the positive changes we need to see in Washington.”
