    Macon Telegraph ^ | November 9 | Travis Fain
    Former congressman Mac Collins spent most of Wednesday saying, through his campaign staff, that he was still in a close race for the 8th Congressional District, and that he wanted to see every vote counted. U.S. Rep. Jim Marshall, D-Ga., held 50.5 percent of the vote and a 1,733 vote edge. He had declared victory. There were some votes still uncounted, but a Telegraph check of outstanding ballots didn't turn up enough uncounted votes to swing the race. Throughout the day, the Collins campaign had volunteers and attorneys in various counties, watching the process of cataloging provisional ballots and any...

    Dealing with Anchor BabiesBy Congressman Mac Collins (Ret. R-GA)Each year the United States grants citizenship to a quarter of a million children of illegal aliens. There is a common misconception among the public that such citizenship is a constitutional guarantee. The fact is that the constitutional question of whether the 14th amendment grants citizenship to children of foreigners born on U.S. soil was addressed by the Supreme Court over 100 years ago in the Slaughter House Cases and, again, in 1971 in the case of Rogers v. Belle . All existing case law confirms that the Fourteenth Amendment does not...

    From: The Washington Times' Insight Magazine Issue Date: May 1-7, 2006, Posted On: 5/1/2006 Collins: Ending America’s addiction to Middle East oil Commentary by U.S. Rep. Mac Collins The United States is addicted to oil. Congress, the federal government and big business have been aware of this problem but like most addicts they failed to correct their destructive behavior until they hit rock bottom. It is essential to our nation’s security that this country becomes unshackled from its dependence on foreign oil. This is not a time for academic or elitist debate on environmental impact. This is the time in...

    Congressman Mac Collins on Today's Immigration ProtestsLike most Americans I have been watching the recent protests in cities across this nation. Today these protests are coming to our home state of Georgia with what is being termed a "National Day of Action on Immigrants' Rights". We are a nation of immigrants but there is a true difference between those protestors filling the streets today and those that built this country. Previous generations of immigrants like our forefathers embraced the American dream and worked hard to learn our language, culture, and become part of the American landscape. These protests today have...

    Mac Collins for Congress ^ | 01/01/2006 | William John Hagan
    I am happy to announce that as of January 1, 2006, I will be assuming the position of Communication Director for former Georgia Congressman Mac Collins. Congressman Collins has declared his candidacy in Georgia’s New 8th District and will be running against Democratic Congressman Jim Marshall. This will mean that I will be significantly reducing the numbers of columns that I will be writing. On occasion I will still, when time permits, write opinion pieces for the foreign press; however, at this time I feel that my primary responsibility as a United States citizen is to work for change at...

    This may be a repost but an important one.Alexandria, VA) – Even though President Bush took the oath of office last week, taxpayers still have one piece of unfinished business from the election: some federal lawmakers – including many seeking higher office – received thousands of dollars in salary overpayments for being away from their jobs during 2003 and 2004. According to a study released today by the 350,000-member National Taxpayers Union (NTU), an obscure federal statute still on the books requires Congressional absentees to forfeit their pay unless they or a family member are ill; but leaders have failed...

    Collins hints of political comeback JEFFREY McMURRAY Associated Press WASHINGTON - U.S. Rep. Mac Collins said he sensed the inevitable days before his defeat in the Republican Senate primary, but he left the door wide open for a return to politics during an interview with The Associated Press. Collins, who will leave Congress in January after 12 years representing Georgia, said he has some ideas for what he'll do next but won't share them, other than his intentions to spend more time helping the family trucking business. "For the uncertainty of the future of what I may do in politics,...

Johnny Isakson opened a wide lead Tuesday in early returns in the Republican primary for the seat held by maverick Democratic Sen.

Eight Democrats vied for the nomination, but face an uphill battle in a state that has experienced a sudden shift to the right in the last two years.

    I know I'm a first time poster, but I've been reading Free Republic for some time. I want to offer some personal observations that will encourage the supporters of Herman Cain. I know there's no reason to believe what I say, but I think you'll find that what I say supports what others have been saying. My information is obtained from independent sources, not from other Free Republic posters. First of all, the poll produced by Insider Advantage is not accurate. Insider Advantage does not have a good history when it comes to polls. They predicted in 2000 that Jeb...

Only Mac has a 100% pro-life voting record, as reflected in his 100% rating and endorsement from Georgia Right to Life. While Karen worked for his congressional office before our children were born, we came to know him as a leader who always voted to protect the unborn and encouraged our own pro-life efforts as Karen volunteered with the local crisis pregnancy center. Mac began his now statewide trucking business at the age of 18. The only candidate from rural Georgia, he understands...

Mac Collins has surprised a lot of people in his bid for the Republican U.S. Senate nomination, but maybe not quite the way he intended.

    DECATUR, Ga. - Herman Cain is having fun. The former head of Godfather's Pizza, who had drawn national attention as a black Republican running for a Southern U.S. Senate seat, seems amused and amazed as he sits at a restaurant and discusses his sudden popularity. Even as he pauses to grab a bowl of soup at Atlanta Bread Co. - an effort to make up for a meal he missed while speaking at a Kiwanis meeting - people show their support. "Go get 'em, baby!" remarks one supporter. For Cain, seeking elected office for the first time, the experience is...

    Congressman Mac Collins Statement On Saddam Hussein’s Court Appearance Congressman Mac Collins issued this statement before taking questions from reporters today (Thursday) at an Atlanta press conference. Today, Saddam Hussein, the butcher of Baghdad, and his evil henchmen begin the process of paying for the crimes they have committed against the Iraqi people and the rest of the world. Saddam’s brutality against his own people through the years, and most notably the mass attacks against the Kurds in 1998, will be met with swift justice at the hands of the Iraqi people. This action, by the Iraqi courts, demonstrates to...
