Retired three star general and former adviser to President Trump Michael Flynn has endorsed Republican Vernon Jones for Governor of Georgia. On Thursday, Flynn referred to Jones as a “common-sense driven leader” in support of the former Georgia state representative.
Flynn slammed current Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp (R) as a “make believe conservative.” He accused Kemp for surrendering to the radical left, who he warned has taken control over the Peach State due to the consistent failures of the current governor.
ENDORSEMENT ALERT: I am so honored to have the support of General Flynn in my campaign to be Georgia’s next Governor.
For three decades, the General selflessly served our country. It is immensely humbling to have his support. pic.twitter.com/UCxmhhBPSr

Vernon Jones went on to announce he has so far raised over $600,000 in the first 10 weeks of his campaign.
