Today, United States Senator Johnny Isakson announced that he has been diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease. In response, Georgia Republican Party Chairman John Padgett issued the following statement:
“Senator Johnny Isakson is a fighter,” said Chairman Padgett. “For decades, Johnny has battled against tax-and-spend liberals, big government advocates, and freedom quashing activists. He’s represented our values with tenacity and our state with unyielding passion.
“Now, Johnny has another fight on his hands and I am confident that he is up for the challenge. While our prayers are with Senator Isakson and his family, we know that this setback will not impact his strong commitment to the people of Georgia. We appreciate the senator’s service and look forward to seeing him out on the campaign trail in the near future!”
