Ag Commissioner Gary Black details why he entered Senate race


ELLIJAY, Ga – Geor­gia Agri­cul­tur­al Com­mis­sion­er Gary Black ® spoke about the impor­tance of the Repub­li­can par­ty retak­ing Sen­a­tor Raphael Warnock (D)’s seat in 2022. 

“They (Pres­i­dent Joe Biden and Warnock) said they want to fun­da­men­tal­ly change Amer­i­ca. I fun­da­men­tal­ly object to that,” Black stat­ed before list­ing the ris­ing gas prices, Mid­dle East con­flict, and small busi­ness cri­sis erupt­ing in the Unit­ed States. 

Black believes he can pro­vide the lead­er­ship that Geor­gians need in the U.S. Sen­ate and that peo­ple choose to vote for him, not against some­one else. 

He also believes the GOP is healthy in Geor­gia with approx­i­mate­ly 60 per­cent new atten­dees turn­ing out for the state’s Repub­li­can Con­ven­tion over the weekend. 

 “We’ve had the need for a cycle or two to get back to own­er­ship of cam­paigns at the local lev­el. Own­er­ship of our val­ues and a will­ing­ness to share them wher­ev­er we go par­tic­u­lar­ly dur­ing cam­paign sea­son. To put forth a pos­i­tive mes­sage and a pos­i­tive vision for the future of the state and the coun­try,” Black commented.

The Agri­cul­ture Com­mis­sion­er has worked close­ly with the Trump admin­is­tra­tion on Georgia’s farm­ing issues. He would love to have the for­mer President’s endorse­ment, but more impor­tant­ly, Trump’s eco­nom­ic mes­sage doesn’t change. Black wants to keep Trump’s poli­cies in place. 

Black’s the first can­di­date to enter the U.S. Sen­ate race with a statewide base in place. He’s served as the Agri­cul­ture Com­mis­sion­er since 2011 and many across the state have already reached out to show their sup­port for his candidacy. 

Two Repub­li­cans Kelvin King and Lath­am Stad­dler entered the Sen­ate race ear­li­er in the year. Many wait to see if UGA great Her­schel Walk­er will enter the race after Trump urged him to ear­li­er in the year. How­ev­er, Walk­er hasn’t tak­en any steps toward declar­ing his can­di­da­cy. For­mer U.S. Sen­a­tor Kel­ly Loef­fler, who lost to Warnock in Jan­u­ary, did recent­ly meet with Trump and could be con­tem­plat­ing anoth­er run. 

For­mer Sen­a­tor David Per­due and For­mer Con­gress­man Doug Collins have opt­ed not to run for the Sen­ate in 2022.
