Here’s Saddler’s full statement:
“We face the greatest threat to our liberty since World War II. Communist China seeks to dominate the world in business, trade, science, technology and militarily - and they are emboldened by our current leadership in Washington. I have always believed in America and its promise. From my time executing US foreign policy on the ground as a special operations leader to my assignment overseeing our nation’s intelligence programs portfolio at the White House, I know how our enemies seek to supplant us, and I will not let that happen. I am engaging fellow Georgians about the opportunity to continue this fight on their behalf in the United States Senate.”
