Here are some quick bits about Rob, who he is, and why he's running?
Rob was born May 20, 1981 in Cheyenne, WY. Although he grew up in the "big city" of Wyoming, Cheyenne only had 50,000 people and was very rural.
Rob and his wife, Blair, married in April 2017. She is originally from West Georgia and they met in 2014. Together, they are welcoming their daughter, Blake, this spring. They also have two rescue dogs, Happy and Grace, and one cat, Avett.
Rob is an avid, dedicated soccer fan. He's a season ticket holder for Atlanta United and has attended 90% of their games since they started - including the title-winning MLS Cup match in Atlanta.
Rob is a small businessman an entrepreneur. He owns two companies outright that do consulting and direct marketing. He also manages an electronic testing compliance company.
Rob has been a Republican since he registered to vote in 1999. He has been a Republican for one reason - this is the only party that truly recognizes the role that individuals have as the ruling power in this country.
Today’s campaign stop was at the Cobb County Republican Women’s Club for their monthly luncheon. Normally, I have photos but today was a little unique.
I do appreciate the Republican Women giving me a few moments to chat. Normally, I talk about how important it is that our state adopt a strategic plan (a business plan), create a program to directly invest in counties, and communicate a stronger Republican narrative.
Today’s words were a bit unique, and I was moved to do something I haven’t done in a very, very long time. I just said a small prayer. I can’t really say what that means other than I felt a sense of relief. For those that also said a prayer for me, I felt a deep sense of appreciation.
I’ve been a Republican for 20 years because I believe in the power of individuals. I’m a Georgia Republican today because of the nature of the people in the room (and across the state). By and large, we care for one another. We hurt when our friends hurt. We feel the pain of a life lost. We rejoice in hearing of people’s successes.
It’s just what Republicans do. We love America because we love Americans. No matter your background, ethnicity, gender, or identity. It’s just what we do.
I can promise you, I will be a Second Vice Chairman that puts genuine, heartfelt efforts into everything I do for this party. ... See MoreSee Less
Another night on the road, this time up in Murray County. Many thanks to Chairman Kevin Jones for giving me a few moments to speak tonight.
I also hope I’m not overstepping my bounds in saying this, but Kevin deserves to know his Republican Family is there for him right now. If you’re one inclined to prayer, please offer him a moment in those prayers. If you’re not one that relies on prayer, offer him your heartfelt support.
This Republic survives by all of us lifting each other up in times of need - not because the government says we have to, but because our hearts remind us we need to. ... See MoreSee Less
