EXCLUSIVE – Jeremy Hunt, a 28-year-old Army veteran who is bidding to unseat Georgia’s longest serving member of Congress in this November’s midterm elections, on Monday landed a high-profile endorsement from Sen. Josh Hawley of Missouri.
Hunt, the Republican son of a Black pastor who earlier this month announced his candidacy for the House of Representatives in Georgia’s 2nd Congressional District, is aiming to oust Democrat Sanford Bishop, a moderate Black Democrat who has served in Congress for three decades.
“I am proud to endorse and support Jeremy Hunt in his run for Congress. As a West Point graduate and former Army intelligence officer, Jeremy has spent his life serving America and fighting for what we believe in. I know he’ll do that in Congress,” Hawley said in a statement that was first reported by Fox News on Monday.

“Jeremy is part of a new generation of conservative leaders; bold, fearless, and principled — exactly what’s needed to defeat a Democrat who has been in Congress for thirty years. This fall, Jeremy Hunt will be part of the Red Wave that will sweep conservatives back into the majority and put a stop to Joe Biden’s ruinous agenda,” Hawley predicted.
