Today, conservative businessman and political outsider Matt Richards announced that he is running for Congress in Georgia’s 10th Congressional District. The seat is currently held by Jody Hice, who announced his candidacy for Georgia Secretary of State earlier this year.
“As a political outsider, committed conservative, self-made businessman, and demolition expert, I’m running for Congress to wreck the radical Left’s socialist agenda and put America first,” said Matt Richards. “From sleeping on a cold, dirt floor to building a successful, multi-million-dollar construction company, I’ve been blessed to live the American Dream. But that same American Dream is under assault by radical Democrats who are hellbent on destroying our country and way of life. We need political outsiders, businesspeople, and fighters in Washington who can rebuild our economy, safeguard our conservative values, take on the cancel culture, stand up for everyday Georgians, and advance President Trump’s America First agenda. At my company, we tear down buildings and clear a path for future growth and opportunities—and in Washington, I’m going to take a sledgehammer to the radical Left’s agenda, fight for our conservative values, and Make America Great Again.”
A lifelong Georgian, Matt was born in Lilburn and currently resides in Bethlehem. After spending a part of his childhood in poverty and sleeping on a dirt floor, Matt was forced to drop out of high school to provide for his family. Through hard work and determination, Matt climbed the ranks from changing oil to working every job in the construction field to building numerous businesses, including Legacy Demolition that he owns today. He is running to replace Republican Congressman Jody Hice, who is challenging disgraced Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger.
