Surrounded by friends and family from across District 29, Josh McKoon filed his qualifying papers this morning at the State Capitol in Atlanta.
McKoon has been campaigning since June of 2009 to fill the seat that is being vacated by Seth Harp who is running to become Georgia's next Insurance Commissioner.
McKoon is the first official candidate to qualify to be the next State Senator of District 29. By qualifying early, he can return to get right back on the campaign trail and travel the district. McKoon understands that there is less than ninety days until the Republican Primary scheduled for July 20th, and he wants to continue spreading his message of conservative reform.
McKoon said, "Today represents the start of a new phase in our campaign to bring conservative reform to Atlanta. Over the last 10 months, I've been traveling the District and listening to you.
Over the next 10 weeks between now and the Republican primary, my campaign will be offering solutions to our problems and outlining in detail my vision for conservative reform at the Capitol. I am excited to continue to work hard to earn your support to become the next State Senator for District 29."
Josh McKoon was born in Columbus, Georgia where he spent his formative educational years. Josh received his law degree from the University of Alabama.
He became a member of the State Bar of Georgia and the Alabama State Bar and practices law with McKoon & Associates. He is the former Chairman of the Muscogee County Republican Party and has served in many conservative capacities.
