Hughes for Congress - One Week Away!
Some of you may remember me sharing with you that my good friend, Brad Hughes (better known as the former editor-in-chief of P&P), is runnning for the U.S. House of Representatives 2nd Congressional District for the state of Georgia. If he wins, he will be the youngest U.S. Congressman in the history of Georgia as well as the first Republican ever to win that district. I just got word earlier this evening that Brad will be meeting the President for the second time tomorrow (Tuesday) as Bush will be traveling through Georgia. He said that Fox or CNN might be covering the speech, so if you are interested, be checking the cable news stations around 3:30 p.m. or so and you might just happen to catch Brad there as well. In case you didn't know, Brad is a recent graduate of Southern Seminary who has gone back to his roots with a desire to make an impact in his community. I ask that you pray for Brad during this time as you could imagine the schedule and stress is really high right now. I along with a couple of other guys are flying down next week to help out the last couple of days as well as be there for the election party. Next week, I might just have to "live-blog" the whole thing (since that happens to be the thing bloggers are doing these days . . .). But seriously, please remember these elections coming up and pray that God will raise up men and women in elected office who will vote in accordance to a biblical worldview and value system grounded in God's Word. Brad is such a man, and I as a friend and brother in Christ, I am proud to see his courage and conviction as he desires to represent the people of the 2nd Congressional District of Georgia.
