His campaign is backed by a number of prominent Cobb leaders, as well as several former aides to Gov. Nathan Deal and well-known Rubio supporters. The Florida Republican, who won Fulton, DeKalb and Cobb in last year's vote, said Hill knows how to “cut taxes while balancing a budget because he’s done it in Georgia.” He also praised Hill's opposition to abortion and support for “patient-centered” healthcare reforms.
Hill initially supported Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker in last year's presidential race but backed Rubio last February as the race heated up. He said he's the only candidate who can work with Rubio to "fix the mess that the previous administration left" – starting with replacing the Affordable Care Act and boosting defense spending.
“Let’s show the Washington Democrats that they can’t buy out the Sixth District,” said Hill.
