This weekend, our longtime friend Martha Zoller officially kicked off her campaign for congress in her own hometown of Gainesville, GA. We welcome her decision to run for office, something people have been asking her to do for years and, because we know she supports the troops, we pledge our support to her candidacy.

Martha's kickoff  event was well attended by veterans, military families, tea partiers and radio listeners, as she is a household name in the community.

"Every morning for the past 15 years, folks have turned on their radio and heard Martha's conservative message. People already know what she stands for." said her campaign manager Ryan Mahoney at the rally in downtown Gainesville.

At MAF we look for candidates who support the troops, that's our most important issue, and we know that Martha is a huge supporter of our military and their missions to keep America safe and free.
She's so committed that she's traveled to Iraq TWICE to help the troops and Gold Star families that she cares for so much!

Presidential Preference Primary for Georgia set for Tuesday,
March 6, 2012

ecretary of State Brian Kemp has announced that Georgia’s 2012 presidential preference primary will be held on Tuesday, March 6, 2012.  Secretary Kemp was given the authority to set the presidential primary date via a modification to Georgia’s statutory code during the 2011 legislative session. Substantial rules changes by the RNC leading up to the 2012 Republican National Convention resulted in states that are “winner-take-all” states like Georgia not having the ability to hold their primaries without losing ½ of their potential delegates if the primary was held before April 1, 2012.

Behind the scenes, much planning and labor was completed by the Georgia Republican Party to facilitate this decision. Secretary Kemp worked closely with party leaders prior to his formal announcement. The GAGOP Rules Committee and State Committee convened to approve a rule change that allowed the Secretary Kemp the flexibility necessary to ensure that Georgia voters would remain a strong voice in the 2012 primary process as we select our next President.

Prior to the rules change, Georgia was a winner-take-all system and would have lost ½ of its delegates to the Republican National Convention in Tampa if the primary was held before April 1, 2012. The proposed change to the GAGOP allows Georgia’s delegates to be allotted on a proportional basis if the Georgia primary was held before April 1, 2012.

The GAGOP commends Secretary of State Brian Kemp for his efforts and diligence in the selection of March 6, 2012 as the presidential preference primary date in Georgia.

Georgia seeks clout in GOP primary for White House

   By Associated Press For the AJC


2 GOP hopefuls in race for U.S. House

The state’s new congressional maps haven’t even been reviewed by the Justice Department, yet multiple candidates have already launched bids for the U.S. House in 2012. Two Republicans have said they will be candidates in the state’s newest district, the redrawn 9th in northeast Georgia. As an open seat — and one that skews heavily Republican — it will likely garner additional candidates, but radio personality Martha Zoller and state Rep. Doug Collins, R-Gainesville, have already announced. Read more.

Cain Upsets Perry in Florida Republican Straw Poll

     Saturday, 24 Sep 2011


This  Presidency 5 Straw Poll is an excellent indicator of strength in the important primary state of Florida, and Herman won with 37 percent of the vote followed by Rick Perry with 15 percent and Mitt Romney with 14 percent.  This is a clear sign that the campaign is gaining momentum! No candidate has been the GOP nominee since 1979 without winning the FL Straw Poll or the SC Presidential Debate.  Mr. Cain won both! 

The results of the Straw Poll are as follows:   

Herman Cain 37%
Rick Perry 15%
Mitt Romney 14%
Rick Santorum 11%
Ron Paul 10%
Newt Gingrich 8%
Jon Huntsman 2%
Michele Bachmann 2%

▪ Deal appoints GOP lawmaker,  Rep. James Mills of
  Gainesville, to pardons board

(How many appointments does this now make from Hall County and Gainesville?)

Gov. Nathan Deal on Thursday appointed state Rep. James Mills, R-Gainesville, to the state Board of Pardons and Parole, a full-time position with a salary of more than $100,000.

Mills, from Deal's home county of Hall, will resign his seat in the House on Oct. 1, which will allow a special election to fill his seat on Nov. 8, the same day as local elections. Mills will replace Gale Buckner, whose term ends Dec. 31.

The appointment comes the day after the state executed Troy Davis in the murder of a Savannah police officer, and the same week that the Pardons and Parole board refused to commute Davis' sentence.

“The duties of the Pardons and Paroles board involve equally important and difficult decisions. James Mills is a man of strong faith, who will ably balance our hopes for rehabilitation with our need for community safety," Deal said in a statement.

Presidential Debate in Tampa - September 22, 2011

Herman Cain looked REALLY good at this one!

What They are Saying!

Last night, Herman Cain dominated the FOX News/ Google/ Republican Party of Florida debate. Whether it was detailing his 9-9-9 Plan or sharing the touching story of his survival of stage IV cancer, Herman captivated the audience both at the debate and at home.

The pundits agreed. Check out what they're saying:

Erick Erickson: "The winner is Herman Cain. The audience loved him... Cain's answers really were out of the park awesome. He provided the most uplifting moments and the most memorable lines, with substance included."

Michelle Malkin: "Herman Cain’s passion and personality really stood out... his personal story, business experience, humor, and faith in the American dream really do add a grass-roots Tea Party flavor to an otherwise bland establishment field." Malkin also named Herman the winner of the debate.

Dick Morris, on Twitter:
" Cain: great answer on Obamacare. Emphasis on rapidity is key. Really good answer"

Ann Coulter, on Twitter"Herman Cain crushed tonight."

A Nathan Deal promise to defend Paul Broun

You’ll remember that after U.S. Rep. Paul Broun, R-Athens, won his congressional seat in 2007, the GOP establishment in east Georgia made a pair of unsuccessful attempts to remove him.

That same GOP establishment may have been listening these last few weeks when, after the debut of Georgia’s new congressional maps, rumors abounded that Broun – whose 10th District was vastly changed – might run in the new 9th.

Where certain prominent Republicans had already identified their candidate.

Broun ultimately decided to stay put. But you have to wonder if Roll Call, the D.C. newspaper, might have stumbled upon one of the factors that kept Broun in place. From an assessment of Georgia’s congressional contests:

Poll Places Herman Near the Top

In the latest Zogby Poll, Herman captured 12 percent of the vote and placed third behind only Rick Perry and Mitt Romney.  When voters were asked whether they would support Herman or President Obama in a hypothetical matchup, Herman only trailed Obama by 3 percent.  With more name recognition, Herman would definitely have surpassed the president.  This poll is very good news for the campaign, and we expect Herman's popularity to rise as more voters hear about his message of Common Sense Solutions.

9/16/2011 Solyndra Scandal Ends Green Jobs Myth

President Barack Obama's solution for America's unemployment woes has been a stubborn campaign to spend hundreds of billions of dollars on economic "stimulus"--much of it on so-called "green jobs." Report after report has shown the approach to be a total failure. And now, a new scandal involving Solyndra, a bankrupt solar panel company in California, should be the final nail in the coffin for the government’s meddling in the free market.

Steps to Serving in the Georgia GOP - 2012

2012 will be perhaps one of THE MOST important years in the history of the Republican Party.  As you know, it is the presidential election year which could make or break this county.  To actively participate as a delegate to county, district, state and the national convention , it is necessary to go through the process. This begins at the Precinct Mass Meetings in February, the County Conventions in March, the District Conventions in April and the State Convention in May.  Republican delegates elected at district and state levels will then go to the GOP National Convention in Tampa in August, 2012. There our candidates for President and Vice President will be nominated.

A week of general turmoil for Georgia’s National Guard

   September 14, 2011, by jgalloway

Last week, Gov. Nathan Deal announced the appointment of a new adjutant general to lead the 14,000 men and women who make up the Georgia National Guard.

State Sen. Jim Butterworth, R-Cornelia, a Delta Air Lines pilot who once flew B-1 bombers for the Georgia Air National Guard, will replace Major Gen. Terry Nesbitt, who has headed up the state Department of Defense and its $630 million-a-year budget for four years.

Whether the governor intended it or not, Butterworth’s appointment has resulted in an unadvertised purging of the Guard’s top ranks. Read entire article which is very interesting.

Comment. . . Many people are wondering why the governor happened to decide at this particular time to appoint Sen. Butterworth to this position.  Butterworth had announced earlier his intention to run for Congress from the new 9th District. Some feel that the Governor wanted Butterworth out of the race for Congress from the 9th District in 2012.  This would perhaps make it easier for the governor's guy in this race,  Rep. Doug Collins of Gainesville.  The other announced candidate for this position is Martha Zoller, well known and popular GA conservative talk show host and activist.

Jarrard takes over for Major Gen. Maria Britt, who announced she would step down after Adjutant General Terry Nesbitt retired. Deal named state Sen. Jim Butterworth, R-Cornelia, as Nesbitt's successor. Butterworth is a Delta Air Lines pilot who flew B-1 bombers for the Georgia Air National Guard.  Read more.
