Georgia grassroots gubernatorial candidate Kandiss Taylor is psyched by the momentum that her movement is gaining. She will be making more stops this Friday, March 4, Saturday, March 5, and Monday March 7 in her campaign bus tour throughout all 159 counties in Georgia.
Calling All Patriots! Georgia grassroots gubernatorial candidate Kandiss Taylor is adding more stops to her bus tour through Georgia, to connect with supporters, and share her optimistic view about her home state. These bus tour stops began on Friday, March 4 at 8 am in Cherokee County, and concluded on Saturday, March 5 at 5 pm in Alpharetta (Fulton) County. There were fourteen stops in total during those two days. Now there have been two more stops added in Roswell and Kennesaw. On Taylor’s website, supporters are being asked to sponsor the tour by the mile if at all possible. Below is the flyer which include time and location details:
“I don’t trust our elected officials, they are not serving our public,” says the mother and longtime Georgia school administrator regarding her motivation for running for political office. “And it isn’t personal; I have met the other candidates and from what I know they seem to be very nice people,” Taylor continues. “But it isn’t about being nice. It’s about are you going to stand up for the will of the people, are you not going to compromise, are you going to honor the Constitution one hundred percent of the time. Or are you going to sit there and sell jobs to China, and push Chinese solar panels all over the state of Georgia and take up our farmland.”
Fulton County, in particular, has been in the spotlight since the 2020 election. There were two whistleblowers that worked at the polls that came forward and testified to Georgia lawmakers during General Assembly hearings regarding their concerns about the way the November 3, 2020 general election was conducted. And both of these women, Bridget Thorne and Susie Voyles, were subsequently terminated from their jobs at Fulton County as a result.
But Fulton County has yet to take any known action against the election workers and supervisors that were responsible for the alleged illegal scanning of thousands of ballots on Election night, after telling election monitors and media representatives that the scanning of ballots would end at 10:30 pm. This caused concern among many Americans, after the scanning of these ballots was caught on videotape and revealed for most of the country to see. What has really prompted such a large part of the American population to push for this situation to be investigated is that only a half an hour after the workers scanned the potentially fraudulent ballots, an election line feed showed a 100,000+ vote spike for Joe Biden, which then put Biden ahead as the winner in the Georgia presidential race.
To date, no chain of custody documentation has been produced for about 333,000 absentee ballots deposited in drop boxes out of an estimated 600,000 absentee ballots deposited in drop boxes during the 2020 election. 18,901 of these ballots with missing chain of custody are from Fulton County. There were also 20,000 to 30,000 mail-in ballots in Fulton County that were determined to be potentially counterfeit, and the non-profit VoterGA who sued to get access to these ballots has yet to get their hands on them so they can be properly examined.
Taylor is the only gubernatorial candidate (and this includes the candidate Brian Kemp who is our current governor) who investigated the reported fraud from the 2020 election herself. She pulled tabulator tapes, made open records requests, and consulted with the people involved with the full forensic audit in Arizona to find out how to get the same type of audit going in Georgia. The current governor has yet to give the go-ahead for such an audit to happen.
For the 2022 election, Taylor is urging voters to vote using via absentee paper ballot, and turn the ballots in on Election Day in person, since there have been so many issues with the voting machines.
Three of the core issues Taylor is building her campaign around are: Jesus, guns and babies. The first issue, Jesus, refers to how America was founded on Christian principles and Georgia is located in the Bible belt. “There’s no debating the fact that when we stuck by those Christian principles we were more unified and America as a whole thrived more economically, socially, culturally and politically.”
While Taylor plans to enforce the tenets of religious freedom, she understands that not everyone believes in Jesus, and that is ok, because “you can still have the American dream and pursue capitalism” under her administration, no matter who you are. Taylor simply stands by what she believes in, because she says she would not be here and would not have everything she has if it wasn’t for her relationship with the Lord.
The second core issue of Taylor’s campaign, guns, refers to our second amendment. America’s Founding Fathers implemented the second amendment to protect the citizens from the inevitability of a tyrannical government. Taylor feels that this protection is more important today than ever, given the current circumstances in our country.
Taylor’s third core issue is babies. This refers not only to abortion, heartbeat bills, and the right to life from conception and onwards; it also touches on human trafficking. Having been in the school system for the past twenty years, mostly as a school administrator, Taylor has been heavily involved in the fight against human trafficking. “I fought for the neediest population in Georgia,” says Taylor.
Taylor’s experience in the school system and familiarity with how the bureaucracy works also makes her an ideal candidate to manage the issue of critical race theory in the school system that has Georgian parents very concerned. The most effective way to end this trend is to see to ensure that teachers that are caught using these methods in the classroom are hit with the code of ethics. “It’s not an ethics violation now, but it will be when I’m governor,” says Taylor.
Taylor has been offered money on several occasions to get out of the race. But she stands her ground. “We need normal people to run and serve and come home,” she says. Taylor refers to “systemic politicians” as one of Georgia’s biggest issues. “So we run for this, we go here and we go there, and we wait our turn…It isn’t anybody’s turn, it’s the best person that’s willing to serve at the time. Whoever that is.”
On February 26, Taylor’s bus tour stopped in Newton/Baker County. Grant Snowden, a district manager on Taylor’s campaign (pictured below, recalled an emotional and passionate interaction with a supporter:
“One man gave Kandiss a check and I saw tears well up in his eyes as he thanked her for doing what she was doing. When Kandiss moved on and started talking to a family of four, that man said to me, ‘come on and walk over to my truck for a minute.’ So I did, he had a four-door truck and opened the back doors and handed me two huge packages of toilet paper and a box of hand wipes. I thanked the man and told him that it would come in good use on the bus for Kandiss. As I was about to take the stuff on the bus, the man told Kandiss, ‘that’s to clean up the Georgia Capital your first day in there!’”
