“While Washington is embroiled in a hostile, philosophical fight, northeast Georgia communities care about problems and solutions in real life,” said Underwood. “I will work relentlessly to clear the path for our citizens to make a living and pursue happiness.”
Underwood, a former chair of the Forsyth County GOP, joins a growing field seeking to succeed Collins as he runs for a U.S. Senate seat. Other candidates in the ruby-red district include state Reps. Matt Gurtler of Tiger and Kevin Tanner of Dawsonville and state Sen. John Wilkinson of Toccoa.
Former U.S. Rep. Paul Broun also plans to run for the seat.
