Trump Admin Official Launches Campaign to Succeed Rep. Jody Hice

EXCLUSIVE – Former Trump administration official Patrick Witt on Monday formally launched his campaign for Congress, joining a large field of contenders aiming to win the Republican nomination in the 2022 race to succeed GOP Rep. Jody Hice in Georgia‘s 10th Congressional District.

“I am running to be a representative of the America First values held by the people here in the Georgia 10th congressional district,” Witt said in a statement shared first with Fox News.

Witt, who served as deputy chief of staff at the United States Office of Personnel Management during the Trump administration, last November joined the then-president’s legal team that unsuccessfully contested the results of the 2020 election in Georgia and a handful of other key battleground states where President Biden narrowly edged Trump.

In his statement, Witt took aim at Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp, Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger and Attorney General Chris Carr. Trump has heavily criticized Kemp and Raffensperger for not helping to overturn the presidential election results in Georgia.
