Georgia GOP Candidate Rebukes Conservatives, Socialism is Not a “Threat”

State Representative Kevin Cooke has now thrown his hat into the ring for the open seat in Georgia’s 14th congressional district, which current Congressman Tom Graves is vacating at the end of the year.

Cooke claims to be a small government conservative. However, one statement he made shows a somewhat tone-deaf view of what is going on politically in America.

In a press release that his campaign distributed on Wednesday, January 22, 2020, Cooke stated “Contrary to popular belief, a giant wave of socialism is not the biggest threat facing our nation, but rather it is the slow drift away from our Constitution allowed for decades by BOTH parties that stands to destroy our country.”
