With Georgia’s largest industry, agriculture, feeling the squeeze from foreign tariffs, Casey Cagle today said that he’s the candidate in this race beholden only to Georgia’s interests.
“When it comes to defending Georgia’s industries, particularly our largest industry, I’ll be a bulldog for Georgia not a lapdog for Washington,” Cagle said. “Agriculture is our state’s largest industry and I’ll always stand up for our farmers, ranchers, and foresters.”
Some of Georgia’s largest crops, including cotton, peanuts, pecans, and soybeans are facing uncertain futures due to retaliatory tariffs which have rocked the global market. Additionally, state assets including the ports in Savannah and Brunswick as well as Georgia’s robust manufacturing industry and growing auto industry have been adversely impacted by tariffs.
“I’ve worked with the governor to expand markets, create jobs, and build wealth. Gov. Deal has been a bulldog for Georgia and that’ll be my focus as well. Georgia’s farmers and business owners work too hard to be faced with this kind of uncertainty.”
