Atlanta, GA - Tuesday, conservative Army Ranger Hunter Hill, notified Governor Nathan Deal's office and Senate leadership that he will resign his seat in the Georgia State Senate. Hill issued the following statement:
“Serving the people of Georgia’s 6th Senate District has been an incredible honor, and I greatly appreciate the support they have shown me during my time in the General Assembly," he said. "My constituents deserve a state senator who will devote his or her full attention to their priorities next session, and my resignation will afford the voters that opportunity.
"Running for governor is a serious undertaking and one that deserves each candidate’s full commitment. Unfortunately, two of my opponents have a history of holding one office while pursuing another. Georgians don’t want candidates for governor putting their political careers ahead of the future of our state.
"Georgia needs true conservative leadership to reach its full potential, and I’m committed to taking our vision to every corner of our state."
