Rubio records robocall for Republican in Georgia special election

via @learyreports

Sen. Marco Rubio has recorded a robocall to gin up support for Republican Judson Hill in Georgia’s much-watched special election Tuesday.

“He can provide the leadership we need to defeat radical terror and repeal and replace Obamacare,” Rubio says. “Judson is the only trusted conservative in the race.”

Hill is a contender in the 6th Congressional District, which had been held by Rep. Tom Price, now President Trump’s health secretary. There are numerous candidates, including Democrat Jon Ossoff, who has been flooded with millions of dollars in donations from across the country as the race is pitched as a test of Trump.

A June 20 runoff is likely.
