Trump urges political adviser to run for House seat in Georgia

Former President Trump on Thursday encouraged a longtime political aide to run for an open congressional seat in Georgia.

In a post on Truth Social, Trump said he would support Brian Jack if he launched a campaign in Georgia’s 3rd Congressional District to replace Rep. Drew Ferguson (R-Ga.), who announced in December he would not seek another term.

“Brian has been thinking about running to succeed Drew, as he has always sought to accomplish incredible things for Georgia and our Country,” Trump wrote. “I encourage Brian, a Fayette County native, to go for it, pursue his dream, and run for Congress.”

“He represents a New Generation of Leadership, and he will be a GREAT Congressman, working closely with me and other Republicans to fix the damage Joe Biden has done to our Country,” he added. “Brian is a man of Loyalty, Honesty, and Integrity, and will never let the fabulous people of Georgia’s 3rd Congressional District down. Should he decide to run, Brian Jack has my Complete and Total Endorsement!”

Jack has not announced whether he will seek office. He worked on Trump’s 2016 campaign, served as White House political director, and is an aide on Trump’s 2024 campaign.

Ferguson, 57, has represented Georgia’s 3rd District since 2017.
