Rep.-Elect Colton Moore Driving Kemp Truck Across Northwest Georgia; Creates Election Day Playlist

Monday, November 5, 2018

After working with Brian Kemp over the last six months, State Rep-Elect Colton Moore said he was asked to take the District 1 'Kemp Truck' all across Northwest Georgia this week. 

He said the Republican candidate for governor "wants us targeting big crowds and near polling stations to remind voters to complete their civic duty and to help stop socialism from spreading throughout Georgia."

Rep.-Elect Moore, who at 24 won the District 1 House seat, said, "Kemp's entire campaign is excited about the truck as they hit the campaign trail for the final time from Trenton to Kemp's victory party in Athens on Election Day. 

"President Trump and Vice President Pence got us fired up last night in Chattanooga for the 'red wall' that we, conservatives, are putting up on Tuesday. District 1 and all hard-working Georgians across the state must get out and vote tomorrow."
 
Also, Rep.-Elect Moore said he has created a Northwest Georgia Voter's Guide and Election Day Playlist.

He stated, "This is the most accurate information we can get to the people of Northwest Georgia. Voter turnout has been absolutely incredible throughout District 1 with 185 percent higher early vote turn out than the election four years ago.

"In light of this, we created an Election Day playlist for all hard-working Georgians to get fired up about for tomorrow. Our communities deserve a great election day and this is our little way of ensuring that happens with Appalachian smiles from Georgia to Maine.
