MACON, Ga. — Six Republicans have qualified to run in the primary for Georgia's 2nd Congressional district. The seat is currently held by Representative Sanford Bishop, who has kept the district blue for decades.
One of the Republicans running is Paul Whitehead, who describes himself as a 'mega MAGA' Republican candidate for Congress born and raised in Macon.
Before deciding to run, Whitehead was a high school government teacher for 22 years.
He says, if elected, he'll push back against the Biden administration.
"The woke liberalism of the Democratic party. What I mean by that is the extreme measures that the Democrats and Joe Biden are taking to pretty much rob us Republicans, normal everyday people, of our rights as citizens of Middle Georgia," said Whitehead.
