Trump Endorsed Candidate for Lieutenant Governor Takes Shots at Weak Georgia Republicans

Burt Jones, a Republican from Jackson, gained Trump’s support by supporting the former president’s assertions that the election was rigged, both in Georgia and nationwide. In Georgia, three vote counts; both computer and manual, verified Biden’s victory against Trump, and the courts have dismissed cases seeking to invalidate the results.

Trump said, “No one has fought harder for Election Integrity than Burt, and no state needs it more.”

Burt Jones, who is running for Georgia’s next Lieutenant Governor, slammed weak Republicans during a rally given by the former president in the Peach State on Saturday.

Burt Jones took to Twitter and shared a clip from his speech at the Save America rally in Georgia. He captioned the video, “Proud to have President Trump’s full endorsement in our campaign for Lieutenant Governor. It might just be…the year of the Dawg!”

He talks about Herschel and his service to the state. Also, he candidly displays his frustration toward weak-kneed Republicans who didn’t support Donald Trump’s claim of election fraud.

Burt Jones takes a jibe at weak Georgia Republicans

State Senator Burt Jones said, “I’m running [for Lieutenant Governor] for a lot of the same reasons that Herschel Walker is running for United States Senate. Because I’m sick and tired of weak-kneed Republicans. I serve in the State Senate [and] I’ve seen them fold on tax issues, I’ve seen them fold on educational issues, I’ve seen them fold on law enforcement issues and I didn’t just see them fold on election issues in 2020, but I saw them run and hide under their desk in 2020.”

“And we cannot have that because the elections, ladies, and gentlemen, could have been so simple to fix,” he said. “They could have been so simple to investigate. But so many of the people in leadership did not want to do that, and I can tell you right now if you elect me lieutenant governor, we’re going to restore confidence in our elections process.”

Burt Jones’ Measures to Protect Election Integrity

According to a campaign official, Jones’ “election integrity platform is a move to simplify the elections process and restore trust and transparency into our elections.”

Jones would want to see the following actions implemented to ensure election integrity:

  • Eliminate drop boxes
  • Return to paper ballots
  • Return more control to local elections boards, away from the Secretary of State
  • Empower investigative bodies such as GBI

His campaign stands in support of the Republican vision and supports former president Donald Trump.

Jones also slammed Duncan, who is well-known for his resistance in the face of Trump’s accusations of 2020 election fraud.

He said, “Geoff Duncan’s 2.0 group is nothing but a grift and vanity project to draw attention away from his disastrous record as Lieutenant Governor,” “the voters of Georgia are tired of self-serving career politicians who want the spotlight and a paycheck—but don’t care about the needs or struggles of real Georgia families.”
