On Wednesday, October 28, the Barrow Journal printed the following article about Rob Woodall's recent visit to the Barrow County Republican Party meeting:
The national political landscape could experience a major change after the November election, according to 7th district congressional candidate Rob Woodall.
With Republicans poised to regain control of the House and possibly the Senate, Woodall said he has faced some tough questions from a skeptical constituency.
Speaking at the Oct. 18 meeting of the Barrow County Republican Party, Woodall said voters want to know how this time will be different from the last time the GOP was in power.
"I think it's going to be dramatic," Woodall said.
Crediting local and state Republicans, Woodall said the Republican Party is being given another chance despite the failures of the party in Washington, D.C.
Woodall said the Republican Party, and in particular the 7th district, has the opportunity to lead on conservative issues.
"We can do things. We can lead on issues that other people in this country cannot lead on," he said. "With your support and your advice and your counsel, we will do that successfully."
With less than two weeks remaining until the election, a clearly energetic and enthusiastic Woodall thanked local party members for their support throughout the campaign and vowed that, if elected, he would represent them to the best of his abilities.
"It's not my seat, it's your seat," he said.
Woodall also promised not to take the current goodwill towards the Republican Party for granted.
"It's not that Republicans at the national level have earned anyone's trust, it's that the Democrats have failed them even worse," he explained. "This is our opportunity and it is a finite opportunity."
Woodall said should Republicans fail their constituents this time, the party could be punished for a generation.
Woodall promised to push forward the issues that voters care most about and said he will work to get the Federal government out of citizens' lives and businesses.
"If you need me, I'm going to be there," he said.
