Letter From Mars Hill Church to Those Who Donated to Mars Hill Global

In Georgia’s 10th District, David Barton is Again an Issue

This week, GOP voters in Georgia's 10th District will decide which candidate, Jody Hice or Mike Collins, will face the Democrat nominee in the Fall. Richard Zimdars, a columnist for the Athens Banner-Herald, watched the two candidates debate and for at least two reasons decided that Collins might be the better choice.
