SAVANNAH -- Democrat Wade Herring, a lawyer and community Leader, announced his campaign for Congress in Georgia’s First Congressional District on Monday. Herring is a well-known and respected Savannah attorney at the HunterMaclean law firm.
“The January 6th Insurrection showed us that our country is more divided than ever," Herring said. "We are being torn apart by lies and divisiveness. Not only that, but time and time again, it seems that our current representative (Republican Buddy Carter) is more focused on politics than putting our families, and our district, first. I’m running for Congress to solve these problems."
Herring also announced a record-breaking campaign finance filing in his district. In the first month as a campaign, Herring raised $113,775.
“We’re thankful for the support that we’ve received from so many people," he said. "It’s clear that many people agree with our message. We need politicians that want to work with each other, not against each other. We need more representatives who want to focus on family issues and put our district ahead of politics."
