Is Georgia the next Virginia?

November 17

“Be watchful, stand firm in the faith”
1 Corinthians 16:13a

Not all that long ago, the idea of Virginia as a thoroughly Blue state would have been laughable. But, the Left was united in purpose, coordinated efforts strategically, and willing to spend the money necessary to win the state.

Now, the Left owns the state.

In 2020, Virginia will not be considered a swing state. The state has voted for a liberal candidate 3 straight times for president, and it has not voted “Red” in a statewide election since 2009.

With the Left having achieved their goals there, the question is: Where will they go next? The clear answer: Georgia.

Among the most alarming defeats in the recent Virginia election was the loss of Virginia’s most conservative legislator to an openly transgender person who outspent him 3:1.

Trust me, the Left will bring the same level of coordination and enthusiasm here to Georgia. They are doing so within the Republican Party – where 4 of 5 candidates in the recent 6th Senate District race disavowed religious freedom – and they are doing so within the Democrat Party. Just last cycle, they elected the first openly gay legislator, and they will be all-the-more active in fighting for radical candidates in 2018.

Do we have the same level of commitment on our side? Are we “watchful” enough? Or, will the Left find an apathetic Church waiting for them here in this traditionally conservative state?

We are devoted to countering the efforts of the radical Left here in Georgia, but, to be frank, we need your help. Currently, we are $18,930 shy of our goal for political fundraising before the end of the year.

Can we count on your support so that we can stand in the gap?

It’s more than money, effort and strategy – As Christians, we understand the political battles we see are mere manifestations of the spiritual warfare we don’t see. This week, we led a prayer service at the Capitol that featured members of every level of government, key leaders and concerned believers who participated in earnest prayer for our state. What a blessing! But, this cannot be a one-time thing. All of us must commit to regular prayer for our Georgia.

Family Policy Alliance in the news – Our support for Coach Small and his First Amendment rights earned some coverage in the local news. We will always be prepared to provide support for religious freedom.

What to pray for – Family Policy Alliance of Georgia is prayerfully considering making an endorsement for governor within the next two months and we are in the final stages of our evaluation process. Please pray for our wisdom and discernment.

In His Service,

Cole Muzio
President and Executive Director
