Graves Statement on Senator Isakson’s Resignation

Ranger, GA , August 28, 2019 -

Rep. Tom Graves (R-GA-14) released the below statement following Senator Johnny Isakson’s (R-GA) announcement that he will resign at the end of 2019.   

“The very first political event I ever attended was Johnny Isakson’s election night party when he was the Republican nominee for Governor in 1990. While the results didn’t turn out as we had hoped, he unknowingly inspired me, a cash-strapped college student, to consider a life of public service. In his 40 years of service, Johnny has shown unwavering dedication to our state and our country. He’s governed with grace and is admired and respected by all who have been lucky to serve with him. While his physical presence will be absent in the U.S. Senate, his legacy and dedication to Georgia families will live on through so many others, including me. Thank you, Johnny.”
