One of the leading pro-enforcement advocates in Georgia endorsed former Georgia Secretary of State and GOP Senate candidate Karen Handel on Monday as the best hope to stop the massive amnesty agenda in Congress, which is supported by liberal Democrats and Republicans backed by groups like the Chamber of Commerce.
D.A. King joined conservatives like former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, who also said that the "good old boys" in the Washington and Georgia establishments fear Handel because she will not be a rubber stamp for them, in backing Handel's candidacy.
"Karen Handel won my vote because of her very real stubbornness and down-to-earth personality," King told Breitbart News a day before the GOP primary. "I have known Karen for years and worked with her in the state Capitol. The Chamber-financed amnesty coalition would get nowhere with Karen Handel."
King also noted that moderate businessman David Perdue, who has a slight lead, "is rather fuzzy on his commitment to a pro-enforcement solution to the massive immigration crisis." If no candidate receives more than 50% of the vote on Tuesday, the top two will head to a runoff in July. Handel, who has surged since former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin endorsed her, is in a fight for second place with Rep. Jack Kingston, who is backed by the Chamber of Commerce that vowed to wage war against conservatives. The Chamber of Commerce has helped Kingston blanket Georgia's airwaves with commercials.
