Joe McCutchen says hes been spending four hours a day pretty much every day trying to spread the word about Dalton Mayor David Penningtons campaign for governor.
Ive got Pennington bumper stickers on both my cars. I wear a Pennington sticker everywhere I go, said McCutchen, an Ellijay resident. Weve got a bunch of people here who are really fired up. Weve got people in Dalton who are fired up. Im getting calls every day from people all over the state who want to join what I call the Pennington Army. Ive been involved in politics for 50 years and Ive never seen the enthusiasm, passion and energy that Ive seen in the Pennington campaign.
McCutchen said he and other Pennington volunteers are calling friends, talking to people and even writing letters to spread the word about Pennington.
Im a third-generation business owner myself, and Ive known David 30 years. Hes done what he said hed do in Dalton, cut taxes, cut spending and keep services high, McCutchen said. I believe hell be elected. I think hell be the best governor in the nation, and I think hell be the best governor in Georgia history.
Pennington has said he will challenge incumbent Gov. Nathan Deal in the Republican primary next year. State School Superintendent John Barge has also said he will seek the Republican nomination.
