Georgia primary runoff election candidates from Congressional District 6 and State House Districts 24 and 28 will attend a stump speech and cookout event on Saturday hosted in Cumming by the Forsyth County Republican Party (FCRP).
“Join us for a family cookout of hamburgers and hot dogs while we hear from our runoff candidates,” said the Forsyth County GOP in a weekly online update.
Georgia primary runoff candidates Jake Evans and Rich McCormick from Congressional House District 6, Carter Barrett and Sheri Gilligan from State House District 24, as well as Brent Cox and Julie Tressler from State House District 28 are scheduled to attend.
“Come get to know those seeking to represent you while getting to know other like-minded conservatives,” the group’s announcement said.
The annual Forsyth stumping event will take place at the McDonald & Son Community Room at 150 Sawnee Dr. in Cumming, Georgia, and run from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Tickets are available in advance for $5 for general admission, while attendance is free for children under 10 years of age. FCRP contributing members are granted free admission as well, and can RSVP before the event in Cumming.
Trump-endorsed candidate Jake Evans will go head-to-head against Rich McCormick to determine the House Representative from the newly-formed 6th Congressional District. Evans just criticized McCormick’s stance on the Second Amendment in an appearance on The John Fredericks Show on Tuesday.
“In my opinion, we’ve got to protect our second amendment. We’ve got to support our law enforcement. That’s the type of true, unafraid, America First fighter/constitutional warrior that the 6th district is yearning for and needs,” Evans said in a recent video.
McCormick responded in a tweet posted on Tuesday writing, “Fake Jake Evans will say anything to advance his career.”
Sheri Gilligan and Carter Barrett will compete for the State House nomination in District 24.
Early voting for the primary runoff election is June 13 to the 17th, and the last day to submit an absentee ballot application is June 10th.
