Rob Woodall, Chief of Staff to retiring Congressman and FairTax sponsor, John Linder, GA-07, has just been declared the winner of his Republican primary runoff election, in Georgia's Seventh Congressional District. Woodall soundly defeated his second-place rival from the earlier Republican primary, Jody Hice.
FairTax Regional Director, Phil Hinson, says that the winner of the Republican primary is likely to become the next Congressman in this heavily Republican district.
This development is good news for FairTax-ers. Woodall was a co-author of "FairTax - The Truth," and he campaigned heavily on the FairTax. Woodall has the best grasp of the FairTax of anyone in Washington and will do a superb job carrying the flag about to be handed him by John Linder.
We welcome Rob Woodall as the new head of the growing club of FairTax co-sponsors.
