Introducing himself to the voters of Georgia’s 2ndCongressional District, Republican candidate Dr. Wayne Johnson does so with a little Christmas cheer in a television commercial running prior to Christmas day.
Dr. Johnson announced his candidacy in November and filed his paperwork with the Federal Election Commission on December 14.
In the TV ad he introduces himself in front of his family Christmas tree and shares messages about the importance of the upcoming 2022 Congressional race to Georgia and to the balance of power in the U.S. House of Representatives. Using a unique delivery format, Johnson only speaks when he delivers the legally mandated “I approve this message” disclaimer.
“I thought it would be a fun way to get in front of the voters for the first time,” said Dr. Johnson, a successful businessman and a former senior official with the U.S. Department of Education as part of the Trump Administration.
Dr. Johnson has spent the month since announcing traveling the district and talking with community leaders and residents. He is one of four announced candidates for the District 2 seat in the May 24 Republican Primary. The winner of this primary will face long-time incumbent Sanford Bishop in the general election in November.
“The right Republican can retire Rep. Bishop, help strengthen the Georgia Republican Party and be a part of flipping the House to Republican in the fall,” said Johnson. “The chaos that Democrats have created in Washington needs to be reversed, and we need to “Stop The Stupid” that has become the norm in a Congress controlled by the Democrats”.
Dr. Johnson was born in Georgia and has been a lifelong resident of Georgia. He is a respected former banker who has established businesses in the district and other parts of Georgia. He has enjoyed both cattle and tree farming and worked for a major corporation in the 2nd District. Dr. Johnson is an Eagle Scout and served as an Officer in the U.S. Army. He obtained his undergraduate and doctoral degrees from Mercer University and his MBA from Emory University. Dr. Johnson currently resides in Macon.
