Judson Hill qualifies for 6th District race
Judson Hill (R-Marietta) has qualified for the race to succeed Secretary of Health and Human Services Tom Price for Georgia’s 6th Congressional District. The special election to fill Price’s seat will be held on April 18.
“I am asking for the votes of the citizens of the 6th Congressional District because I want to serve them as a conservative reformer. I am running for Congress with a record of standing firm on principles of liberty, limited government and fiscal responsibility,” Hill said. “We have a short period of time to enact the changes needed to put our country back on the right course. As we work to repeal and replace Obamacare as soon as possible, I’m the conservative legislator in this race who has written and passed patient-centered healthcare reforms in Georgia to expand access and lower costs. No one can replace Secretary Price, but I’m prepared to pick up his mantle and continue work on this pressing issue that affects all Georgia families.”
Sen. Hill’s qualification comes on the heels of his endorsement by both the Family Research Council and former Speaker and 6th District Congressman Newt Gingrich, who referred to Hill as a longtime friend and the kind of “proven conservative leadership Georgia needs.”
“The people of our great country voted in November to chart a new course to restore America’s leadership role in the world. America’s best days are ahead of us if elected leaders will simply return to our founding principles and seize the opportunity to fundamentally reform Washington, D.C.,” Hill said.
Hill has pledged to continue to work tirelessly to pass fiscally responsible spending reforms and cut unnecessary regulations that hurt small businesses. He is also eager to join Secretary Price in the fight to repeal Obamacare and replace with patient-centered solutions for healthcare access for all Georgians.
