Ray McBerry Polls Second in Governor's Race Among Republicans
20 April 2009
In the straw poll conducted at the 11th District GOP Convention this Saturday 18 April 2009, Ray McBerry polled SECOND among all Republican announced and potential candidates. The significance lies in the fact that the 11th District includes Cobb County, the largest Republican county in the state. Statewide, Ray polled third among Republican candidates in the governor's race.
In less than two months, Ray McBerry's campaign for Governor in the Republican race has volunteers now organized in 80 counties across the state, and the number is growing weekly. The number of volunteer coordinators now exceeds 200, with more than 800 total volunteers in the organization.
In the last two weeks, Ray's "Georgia First" volunteers have personally handed out 10,000 pieces of literature - no small feat considering that these were all distributed hand-to-hand by real people. On tax day this past Wednesday, Ray was personally on hand for the Macon and Atlanta Tea Parties while volunteers blanketed the state in other tea parties, participating with campaign spokesmen and literature.
Ray's strong States' Rights message, coupled with his fiery oratory, is received overwhelmingly by Georgians with traditional values everywhere that he speaks. His campaign theme of "NOT Atlanta... NOT Washington... but GEORGIA FIRST!" appears to be precisely what Georgians want to hear from their next governor, particularly in the face of an out-of-control federal government.
Ray commented, "As word spreads among Republicans that we are the most conservative candidate in the race, traditional conservatives and constitutionalists in the Party are flocking to our Georgia First campaign. Most notably, we are having large numbers of former Oxendine supporters coming onboard as they discover that there is a candidate more conservative than John; but with Casey (Cagle) dropping out of the race this past week, we are also noticing that the conservatives who were formerly supporting him are coming onboard, too."
