Endorsements

GA Senator Johnny Isakson

“Karen Handel is one of the hardest working people I know. Karen has proven time and again that she is a problem solver who focuses on results rather than politics. In Congress, she established herself as a leader on the issues we care about — reducing taxes and helping small businesses; combating the opioid crisis; protecting those with pre-existing conditions and expanding health care options for all.

Karen Handel is who I trust to represent us in Congress, and I’m proud to support Karen to be our next representative for Georgia’s 6th Congressional District.”

Georgia Governor Brian Kemp

“Karen Handel is a hardworking Georgian with a track record of service and bold leadership. Like Senators Isakson and Perdue, I am proud to support Karen and know she will work diligently to advance policies that continue our economic growth, preserve freedom, enhance public safety, and lower healthcare costs for American families. I encourage voters of Georgia’s Sixth District to join me in backing Karen Handel for Congress!”

US Senator David Perdue

“Karen has been a fighter her entire life.  I’ve seen how hard Karen works — on the campaign trail and in Congress. She is tough and tenacious and has exactly what it takes to represent the people of GA6 and win this seat.  She brings her business experience to the issues in Congress to work for commonsense solutions that matter to the hardworking families here in Georgia.  We worked together to pass historic tax cuts, cut regulations and rebuild our military.  Now more than ever, we need a conservative like Karen who will stand up for us and stand with our President.  That’s why I am standing with Karen and am proud to support her.”

Former Speaker of the House of Representatives,
and Former Georgia Congressman (GA-6), Newt Gingrich

“Again and again, Karen Handel has shown that she has the knowledge, experience, and will to do what is necessary to help Georgia’s 6th District. She also has the toughness necessary to help us fight and stop Congressional Democrats and their radical agenda. Electing Karen is critical for retaking the House and restoring common sense in Washington.”

“Karen Handel quickly distinguished herself in the House as an engaged, effective member on behalf of GA6.  She’s a tested leader with the strength and experience to win this seat, help us regain the majority, and stand up against the radical agenda of the left.”

House Minority Whip Steve Scalise

“Karen Handel is a proven leader and tireless worker, and now more than ever, we need a fighter like Karen in Congress to push back against the Democrats’ radical agenda that would hurt families in Georgia’s 6th congressional district. She is the right person for the critical battle we face ahead.”

House Republican Conference Chair Liz Cheney

“Karen Handel is strong, tough, and absolutely the right person to fight for Georgia’s 6th District in Congress.  She is a respected leader and a relentless advocate for her constituents and is not afraid to stand up to business as usual in Washington in order to help the individuals that she serves. I’m thrilled that she is running for Congress and offer her my unwavering support so she can rejoin our Conference in opposing the Democrats’ radical socialist vision, which will empower DC bureaucrats, while robbing the American people of their fundamental freedoms and trampling on our country’s most cherished principles.”

Former Secretary of Health & Human Services and
Former Congressman from GA-6, Tom Price

“To win in 2020, we need a strong, capable and independent leader like Karen who is prepared for the tough fight ahead, so that we take back GA6.  Karen knows and respects our community, and will represent all without favoritism.  She is a longtime leader in our state and Karen has shown time and time again that she cares about us and the issues that matter most.”

“Karen Handel knows her constituents and what’s really important to them.  She’s a longtime community leader, and that’s exactly why she is the best to represent GA6 and our best to win back the seat.”

Congressman Rob Woodall, GA-7

“I was so proud to see Karen Handel elected as Georgia’s first female Republican to the U.S. House of Representatives. It was such a privilege to work beside her and see first hand the zeal with which she represented the 6th Congressional District. She was a powerful advocate for her constituents and our state, and I am excited to see her enter the race to regain this seat. The 6th Congressional District and the State of Georgia need Karen Handel back in Congress, and for that reason, I am excited to endorse her candidacy.”

Congressman Austin Scott, GA-8

“Karen is an exceptional leader and Member of Congress.  Vivien and I are happy to support her in this race.  She is one of the hardest working individuals I have ever known.  She is smart.  She cares.  And, she can win.”
