Republican Presidential candidate John McCain was in Atlanta last week raising money for his presidential bid.  At the function McCain recognized Republican State Senator Jeff Mullis.  Mullis was one of the first Georgia Republicans to throw his support behind Senator McCain, and McCain took notice of that fact saying, "“Senator Jeff Mullis was one of my earliest supporters in Georgia, and truly I appreciate his leadership, friendship, and support.”

Mullis, a resident of Chickamauga,  is seeking re-election as the state senator from Georgia’s 53rd District which includes Chattooga, Dade, Walker and part of Catoosa County.  He is opposed by Democrat Bruce Coker of Lafayette.
