    Matt Gurtler (GA)

    Wow this guy is a State Rep and a Ron Paul supporter!

    He has been endorsed by Rand Paul for the 9th Congressional District (Rep. Doug Collins is running for U.S Senate)

    HIAWASSEE, Ga. – State House Representative Matt Gurtler, 8th District, formally announced Feb. 18 that he received a campaign endorsement from U.S. Senator Rand Paul. “I am proud to receive Senator Rand Paul’s endorsement for Congress,” Gurtler said. “Rand Paul is one of the few men in Washington D.C. willing to stand up for the Constitution and take on the establishment.”
    Check his wiki:

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Matt_Gurtler

    Interestingly the establishment recruited a well funded primary challenger to take him out last time (like they did to Gunny) but he won with 60% of the vote. This suggests he's popular to me.

    It's great to see a new generation of candidates who are State Reps or senators running for higher office. This is how we win!

    He looks good...

    I am a Limited-Government Conservative Republican

    In Congress, I will fight to protect your right to keep and bear arms, work to stop government interference in the free market, stand firm to defend life at every chance, advocate to reduce or eliminate taxes, and advocate getting the federal government out of our children’s education.

    I’ll most assuredly bring transparency and accountability to government by explaining all my important votes like I’ve done these past four years, and I’ll be sure to let you know What’s Really Going on in DC.

They now seek higher office and voters who know them and know that they wont compromise like Ron are giving them a look. Also Rand is endorsing them and so are groups like Club 4 Growth and FreedomWorks.

    This is a potent (and hopefully) winning combination.

    This, many don't realize that politics is like running a business. You gotta keep working hard and sacrificing until you get your foot in the door, then slowly build your name.

    Rand was lucky to have an entire national organization behind him so he got in the senate on the first try, which is virtually impossible.

    Very true. Rand had the Paul name which gave him the leg up. He was also up against a hopeless establishment candidate in Grayson. It is very rare that you go from nothing to the Senate. In fact you can count them on one hand...

    Matt hit 175K with his Q1 fundraising. In a district this rural this is a big total. He did this with 890 donors averaging $197 per donor. He is a popular sitting state rep. in a district that went 79% for Trump in 2016. All he has to do is win the primary. He is most definitely a Ron Paul Republican. Please consider donating to his campaign.

    No polling as of yet but he is in the hunt. There are 9 candidates in the primary. He has been attacked quite a bit from the other two front-runners in the last week which leads me to believe he is THE frontrunner at this point.

    His fundraising is top tier and protect freedom PAC has committed to a 6 figure ad buy.

    The election will most likely go to a run off if he can't get 50% in the primary since there are 9 candidates running. He has a great track record in the Georgia house and will be another Thomas Massie.

    Just got back from about 7 hours of door knocking in Northeast GA.

    Lots and lots of liberty-lovin' folks in Northeast GA. We've got a great chance to win this seat. Matt even took the time out to come meet me and talk politics for a bit. The race will more than likely be go into a run-off and need more financing.

    If you guys are interested in getting another ron-paul republican in the house please consider donating.

    TOADY IS THE DAY!

    The primary is the most important part of this race (district is R+31) because the general will be a cakewalk. I read that the GA SOS wont release any election results until the last polls are closed and unfortunately that wont be until after 10pm EST tonight (due to polling locations in metro atlanta having to extend hours due to malfunction) so it is going to be a late night for election returns.

    Hopefully we can pull this out and get into a run-off. Looking forward to getting another Ron Paul Republican in Congress.

    Gurtler came in 1st place with 22% and Andrew Clyde came in at 19% so the two will move to a run-off on August 11th.

    The time for action is NOW. Andrew Clyde raised DOUBLE what Gurtler did and that was basically all self-financing so his pockets are deep and will no doubt have the means to self-fund the run-off. If you want to get another Ron Paul republican in Congress please donate. Please consider donating at www.mattgurtlerforcongress.com

    I just made a donation, would love for someone to match!
