Statement by Dr. Wayne Johnson, Candidate for the U.S. Senate,
On Tuesday’s Primary Election in Georgia:
‘We Can Do Better Than This. We Must Do Better Than This’
Macon, Ga. June 10, 2020 – Republican Senate candidate Dr. Wayne Johnson today released the following statement regarding Tuesday’s elections in Georgia.
“As a Republican candidate for the United States Senate who will be seeking every vote possible come this November, I am appalled at what we experienced Tuesday in the Georgia primary. We have witnessed ‘absurdity’ in the voting experience in Georgia. We can do better than this. We must do better than this.
“Georgia is being ridiculed across the nation today, and this comes on the heels of voter suppression claims during our state’s most recent election for Governor.
“The time to act to ensure a successful November election in Georgia is now, and Republicans must make every effort to insist upon and support that future elections are properly administered.
“Based on Tuesday’s voter experiences in Georgia, I believe it is time for Georgia to fully embrace voting by mail. Despite the objections of many Republicans in Georgia and in Washington, including President Trump, I support expanding mail-in voting for this November 2020 election and all elections going forward. Georgia Republicans should take the lead and the responsibility for ensuring that a poor election process is never experienced in Georgia again.
