An Open Letter to My Fellow Republicans

Dear Fellow Republicans,

I write you today to encourage peace and unity within the Republican Party.  We have concluded a long and trying primary season.  It’s natural to feel some animosity towards your opponent and their supporters if you lost, but we must move forward.  It seemed like this primary election was more of a civil war between the fiscal and social conservative factions, but now we must reunite and face a new challenge from Roy Barnes in November.

We had two excellent candidates that fought hard to earn the votes of Georgians.  Karen Handel did a fantastic job as Georgia’s Secretary of State.  A major accomplishment was the implementation of the voter ID law and defense of it from attack by Roy Barnes and the Obama justice department.  Our nominee, Nathan Deal, represented our district well in Washington during his tenure as Congressman.  He took the values from North Georgia and applied them to legislation in Washington.  Nathan will apply those same principles as governor.

I believe that Nathan will be a strong, effective leader as the next governor of the great state of Georgia.  Now is the time to end our hostilities between each other and begin to rally behind our nominee.  Georgia deserves a governor with conservative principles to lead us into the future.  Nathan will be that governor.

Please join me in voting for Nathan Deal on November 2nd.

Nathan A. Smith
