On May 27, Rep. Jody Hice, R-Joe, attended and spoke at an “America First” rally in Dalton, Georgia, hosted by Congressmen Matt Gaetz and Marjorie Taylor Greene. a speech. He expressed his determination to restore voters’ faith in the integrity of the election and his hope that everyone would pray for it.
Heath said, “We’ve fought for this country all our lives; we’ve fought for this state all our lives. I believe that what it all boils down to is that America is actually going through a spiritual battle right now. I ask you to pray together for that, and may God help us.”
It was the first time U.S. Rep. Heath has made a public speech at a rally since he announced his candidacy for Georgia secretary of state on March 22. He said he did so for the same reason he joined the House Freedom Caucus, a congressional caucus made up of conservative Republican members of the U.S. House of Representatives, from the beginning.
He said, “It’s about following the Constitution, doing what we promise to our constituents and acting in the best interest of America, not ourselves.”
Rep. Heath reviewed Georgia’s two 2020 elections, including the presidential race and two senatorial races.
Heath said he and another Georgia congressman actually had a conversation with Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger last March to raise their concerns about sending out a large number of absentee ballots. “We urged him not to send out absentee ballot requests to all registered voters, which we know would lead to a disaster. Any secretary of state will tell you that voter registration documents are inaccurate because people will die and relocate. All secretaries of state will say that the ballot registration inaccuracy rate is between 5 and 10 percent.”
Also, he raised the issue of approving Georgia voters to use unmonitored ballot boxes during the CCP virus, commonly known as the Wuhan virus and the New Crown virus. Heath noted that the area has become a mass dumping ground for ballots because the ballot boxes are not monitored. In the two 2020 elections in Georgia, Biden defeated Trump and won the presidential election by 0.3 percent; Jon Ossoff defeated David Perdue by 1.2 percent and Raphael Warnock defeated Kelly Loeffler by 2 percent.
Heath received the endorsement of former President Trump the same day he announced his candidacy for secretary of state. Heath said he is now on the front lines to stop House Resolution #1 (HR1 Congressional Bill), introduced by congressional Democrats, from becoming the law of the land and preventing the federal government from interfering in individual state elections.
He said, “All of the fraud that has occurred in Georgia is encapsulated in the HR1 Congressional Bill, which mandates that ballots be mailed and mailed to all registered voters, and also does not require verification of voter identification.”
Trump issued a statement March 22 strongly endorsing Heath to challenge Secretary of State Raffensperger in the 2022 party primary. “Unlike the incumbent Georgia Secretary of State, Heath is based on integrity,” the statement said. “Heath will stop fraud and inject integrity into our elections!”
Heath is one of the most prominent conservative Republican lawmakers and has represented Georgia’s 10th District since 2015.
