Judson Hill says he won’t join GOP race for attorney general

One week after Sam Olens, chairman of the Cobb County Commission, announced he was running next year for attorney general, state Sen. Judson Hill (R-Marietta) has declared he won’t.

In an e-mail to fellow senators of in the Republican caucus, the lawmaker said he’d concentrate on re-election and his soon-to-be-important position as chairman of the Senate Reapportionment Committee.

Wrote Hill:

Shelly and I have carefully considered the impact a statewide race would have on our family, as well as if this is truly the path the Lord has for us. We have been praying over this decision for weeks.

We have concluded that at this time a campaign for attorney general would not be the right thing for our family. Our children are still of an age when Dad’s presence on a consistent basis counts for a lot.

We all have made a decision to make sacrifices in our lives for public service. A statewide campaign is a great a sacrifice to ask of my family.

Judson Hill is a “Reagan/Bush” man, by his official biography’s admission, and he’s been “praying for weeks.” Reagan’s line is cut-off (some time ago), Bush assassinated John Kennedy (in 1963) and his homosexual draft-dodging son committed 9/11(on 9/11/01).

Does he think the All-knowing G-d is holding out on him when eighty percent of America and the rest of the world knows already? Or could he actually be worshipping Mammon?

Wise up East Cobb and parts of Fulton. Georgia needs leaders living in “real time” truth, not Mammon-worshippers conformed to treason because it pays “so well.”

Funny that Jud wants to spend time with his family. Maybe he is making up for lost time when he cut child support to his first family and was sued for being a dead beat in delinquent payments.

Birds of Feather flock with Pistol Perv’ Bob Barr, Line Cut-off and WWII dodger Reagan, Adulterer/JFK-assassin Bush and his 9/11-committing draft-dodger closet-queen, Economy wrecker W.

If you read on, he was not sued for child support but the court had ordered no child support due to joint custody and then only raised child support from zero dollars to $100 monthly after several years. Seems like there is more to that story … maybe he’s one of those good Dads?
