More than 100 sheriffs endorse Cagle
Statewide support reflects reputation as ‘go-to guy’ for law enforcement
 
Casey Cagle, the leading conservative Republican for governor, announced today that 103 current and former sheriffs across Georgia have endorsed his campaign. The announcement of this statewide network of respected and trusted leaders follows Cagle’s unmatched fundraising haul of nearly $7 million in eight months, and the endorsements of 1,500-plus grassroots leaders across all 159 counties and 300-plus elected officials across Georgia. 
 
“Casey is the strong leader that I know we need as governor of our state,” said Floyd County Sheriff Tim Burkhalter. “He has always led for our law enforcement community, and I am excited to see that more than 100 other sheriffs are supporting his campaign. He is certainly Floyd County’s guy.”
 
“You simply don’t receive such widespread support without being a proven leader,” said Columbia County Sheriff Clay Whittle. “Casey’s unwavering commitment to the law enforcement community is most impressive. In fact, his first stop as a candidate for governor was a visit with our law enforcement officers.”
 
“Casey is our go-to guy,” said Gwinnett County Sheriff Butch Conway. “He is a proven leader that always delivers for the law enforcement community. He has also led to protect Georgians by eliminating sanctuary cities in our state, and I fully support Casey Cagle’s candidacy for governor.”
 
“I am confident that Casey Cagle is the man we need as our next governor,” said retired Sheriff Steve Cronic. “During my 12 years as Hall County’s sheriff, Casey was always accessible and he always led for the law enforcement community. He is a bold, conservative leader that every Sheriff – and every law enforcement officer – should be supporting.”
 
“Having such widespread support among this group of respected law enforcement leaders is extremely humbling,” said Cagle. “This is a group of selfless public servants, and we are all indebted to the services of the brave men and women who wear the badge and risk their lives for our safety. As governor, I will continue to back the badge at every turn.”
 
Cagle has pledged to cut taxes by $100 million in his first 100 days, deliver a comprehensive 10-year infrastructure plan, and create 500,000 new jobs in the first four years of his administration. He has also made workforce development a top priority, and will continue to lead on developing a world-class education system in Georgia.
