Macon, Ga. September 16, 2020 - The Georgia 2020 U.S. Senate election process is proving to be highly confusing to experienced political people, news professionals and, above all, to the citizens of Georgia who will be casting their votes in two separate, and different Senate elections this November.
There is a tremendous need for the citizens and voters of Georgia to be more fully informed about the processes associated with these two separate Senate elections. In order to provide voters with an element of additional important information, U.S. Senate Candidate Dr. Wayne Johnson has produced and published a video which serves to explain how these U.S. Senate elections that are being held this year in Georgia are being conducted.
One of the elections, the race between Republican David Perdue, Democrat Jon Ossoff, and Libertarian Shane Hazel is just like any other election process that voters in Georgia are used to. Three candidates, each of which were decided in party primaries, now facing each other in the November General Election.
The second Senate race is unlike any other that Georgians are used to seeing. This second race, a Special Senate Election to decide upon a person to fulfill the remaining two years of recently retired Senator Johnny Isakson, has 21 candidates vying for the job. Of these 21 candidates, six are Republicans, eight are Democrats, five are Independents, one is a Libertarian and one has declared to be of the Green Party. This large cast of candidates makes for a unique and complex race. Also, an election of this nature — where anyone who was willing to pay the qualifying fee, and without any form of an election primary or signature list of voter support — will very likely never be seen in Georgia again. The Georgia legislature and Governor Kemp will most probably change the law so as to prevent a non-primary election of this nature from ever taking place again.
Dr. Johnson believes that one of the most troubling aspects associated with the Special Senate Election has been the lack of engagement by the news forums of Georgia in educating voters to all of the candidates in this race. Each candidate has set themselves forward as being willing to serve the citizens of Georgia, and therefore deserve to be presented to the public through legitimate news reporting as someone for voters to consider.
Johnson sets forth that “There remains plenty of time and opportunity for Georgia’s print and broadcast news sources to correct this situation. The eyes of the nation are on Georgia at this moment regarding these two Senate seats. Hopefully, all candidates in the Special Election will get fair and equal treatment in future stories about the election. This election reporting should be much more than just about appointed Senator Kelly Loeffler, Representative Doug Collins, and Democratic Party backed Pastor Raphael Warnock. There are 18 additional outstanding patriots in this race.”
About Dr. A. Wayne Johnson
Dr. Johnson served as a senior executive within the Trump Administration overseeing the nation’s $1.6 trillion student loan program that affects 44 million Americans and their families, including 1.8 million citizens of Georgia. During his time in office he witnessed first-hand the devastating life impact that un-checked student loan debt is having on the very fabric of America. During his time working in the Executive Branch of the government he reached the conclusion that only changes in Federal Law would serve to correct the serious problems brought about by the current Federal Student Loan Program. Therefore, Dr. Johnson resigned his position with the government and now seeks election to the U.S. Senate for Georgia so that he can lead the charge to make the required changes to Federal higher education finance law. Johnson has put forth an Opportunity Plus Plan for Higher Education that can be reviewed on his website www.johnsonsenate.com. This plan would cancel more than $1 Trillion in student loan debt and would provide $50,000 to each high school graduate in order to fund these graduates as they undertake job skills training or academic pursuit. Dr. Johnson holds both an earned Doctorate in Higher Education Leadership and a Masters in Business Administration. He is also an accomplished and successful private sector executive. He considers his time working in Washington as highly challenging and professionally rewarding. Dr. Johnson is not a politician, and considers himself fortunate to have been allowed to be a public servant in the Federal Government of the United States of America. He is a U.S. Army veteran, an Eagle Scout and a product of Georgia’s education system. He makes his home in Macon, Georgia.
