Dear Republican Friends,
I am running for re-election as Chairman of the Georgia Republican Party, and I want to ask for your support and vote at the State Convention on Saturday, May 16, 2009.
It has been my distinct honor and privilege to serve as your Chairman of the Georgia Republican Party for the past two years.
When I ran for Chairman in 2007, I pledged to “energize, mobilize and motivate the grassroots to support the Georgia Republican Party efforts and to maintain the integrity and professionalism of the State Party organization.” We did exactly that. Georgia shined as a bright spot for the Nation and stayed RED. In a difficult national climate we delivered 15 electoral votes to John McCain, kept our majorities in the State House and Senate, defended our U.S. Congressmen, and won an open Public Service Commission seat. We accomplished this together.
In 2010 we must continue the momentum from our successes in 2008. We must:
Have a strategic plan in place from the County chairs to the U.S. Senate that ensures the same level of collaboration that we saw during the runoff
Set up Strategic Field Operations that will include victory staff and structured statewide grassroots organization
Execute an extensive Early and Absentee Voting Plan
Aggressively target and recruit potential Republican voters
Utilize new media and other technological avenues through an overhaul of the website and IT system
Continue successful Election Day Operations to ensure fraud-free elections.
Continue providing support for our candidates across the state
With your support, we solidified and bolstered our majorities in 2008. Together in 2010 we will lead the charge, and I believe that I am the best person to lead us to victory.
Thank you for your friendship and support. I ask for your vote on Saturday, May 16, 2009. Sue’s Still the One!

On May 16th, Georgia Republicans will be gathering in Savannah to elect our State Party’s leadership for the 2010 election cycle. It is my sincere belief that Chairman Sue Everhart is the right person to lead the Party to victory in 2010. Under Sue’s leadership, Georgia Republicans were winners in 2008 and held a valuable U.S. Senate seat in a tough runoff.

Bob Mayzes, GA GOP
While the rest of the country is fading to purple, Sue has worked tirelessly to build Georgia to a deeper red state. Her fundraising ability and grassroots knowledge has been essential in the hard-fought campaigns of this year. These past two years, Sue has become a proven leader here in the State of Georgia. With 2010 right around the corner, we need her skills again to make sure that free enterprise and liberty prevail. That's why I am once again endorsing Sue for State Party Chairman.Suzi Voyles2nd Vice PresidentGeorgia Federation of Republican Women
John Oxendine: Sue's Still the One!
John is proud to have been the first candidate for Governor to support the re-election of Sue Everhart as our state chairman. As early as the GOP National Convention in Minnesota, John made public his support for Sue. The Georgia Republican Party needs Sue's leadership now more than ever. If you support the grassroots, then you support Sue Everhart.
Sue,You have my full support, again.

"Sue - thank you for EVERYTHING that you do for the GAGOP. You have been the most accessible chair that I have ever worked with. During my tenure as a county chair, I appreciated your support, advice, and outreach to our grassroots. Thank you for returning the GAGOP to it's roots. You can count on my unswerving support at the GAGOP convention this Saturday and during your next term as Chair!"
Cindy Johnson, Sandy Springs.
Sue has worked tirelessly for all Republican candidates. She has helped all Republican clubs and County Chairman. I urge all to support Sue in her re-election.
I wholeheartedly support the re-election of Sue Everhart as Chairman of the Georgia Republican Party. Sue has been an asset to our party in so many ways, but I will expound on my own experiences. In the last election I worked with a congressional candidate in Georgia's 12th district. She was willing to work around her own personal schedule to attend an event for our campaign. Additionally, Sue has attended more events statewide than any other Chairman that I have knowledge of. Her presence all around the state, from North Georgia to Augusta to Savannah and all the events in between have made 'The Party' much more accessible. Sue has the ability to work well with candidates, elected officials, and also is able to connect with individual voters in a way that is enviable. I urge you to vote for Sue Everhart for Chairman of the Georgia Republican Party.Sarah Harper ScottColumbia County Young Republicans, Event ChairFormer Campaign Coordinator, John Stone for Congress
I, Clydeen Tomanio of Catoosa County would like to personally endorse Sue Everhart for our State Party Chairman again. She is a woman, who always asks the right questions, knows how to implement ideas, comfortable about finding someone who has the answers if see does not have them and is fair. Sue has worked hard to establish a strong grassroots network with conservative values to all across Georgia. Sue has done an outstanding job as state chair so we must do all we can to support her for another term as our State Chairman. Please join me to wish Sue Good Luck!
Sue has my absolute full support
Candidate for Commissioner of Agriculture
You know I support Sue. I am running for re-election and have added an endorsement on my push cards which I will be handing out in Savannah. I have enjoyed working for Sue the last two years and hope you will vote for me to serve with her another two years. Sue has worked tirelessly for this Party not only as Chairman but as a volunteer for years. She has a plan and she needs workers out in the counties and districts to help when she calls on them. I am proud to support Sue and hope all the delegates and alternates will attend the convention and vote for Us on the 16th.

Please take the time to read the following letter sent in support of Sue Everhart, Chairman of the Georgia Republican Party. Sue has been an outstanding Chairman and we as the grassroots deserve to keep someone as chairman who actually takes our phone calls, visits our districts, knows how to raise money and be fair to all candidates. Sue is STILL the One!!
Toria Morgan, Cobb County
Bettye, I cannot get connected from the road. Please add my name to her list. I endorsed her this morning in my tweet.
Eric Johnson, Candidate for Governor
I had the pleasure of serving as the Decatur County GOP Chairman during Sue's current term. I was pleasantly surprised to have her visit our area down here in the Southwest corner of the state. Sue was extremely likeable, approachable, and has proven to be extremely effective as State Chairman. She has a no-nonsense attitude toward things. That's what impresses me the most. I hate processes that bog down and never do what they were intended to do. Apparently, so does Sue, because she has consistently been able to produce results that matter in a timely manner. Sue Everhart has my overwhelming endorsement!Thanks,
Keith D Sellars
She's got my vote!!!
GRIFFIN-SPAULDING COUNTY RW
Joe & Sarah Looper, Atlanta
Sue reallly is THE ONE! She has stayed in touch with the grass roots and has given 24/7 to the Republican Party for two years. She deserves to be reelected for another 2 year term.
I've known Sue for a few years now. I first met her when I was Secretary for the Houston County GOP. I've always supported Sue. I came into the Cobb Republican Party under another "chairman". I had never heard from him or about him. I got a Christmas Card from him with a picture of his family and had no idea who they were!! That never happens with Sue. No one wants to go back to the "good old boy" system, least of all me. I want to know who makes the decisions for the Georgia GOP and that he/she has the grassroots effort first and foremost. Georgia cannot afford another puppet chairman! Sue has brought us into the light and Georgia GOP is respected throughout the country because of her hard work. Let everyone in Georgia know that "SUE IS THE ONE....STILL!"Peggy HendersonCobb County Republican Secretary
