Belle Isle handily wins poll on State Senate race.
Wins more votes than opponents combined; also picks up endorsement of conservative group.
(ALPHARETTA) - David Belle Isle's campaign to bring a Conservative Majority to the State Senate picked up big momentum in the last week. First, Belle Isle picked up the endorsement of the group Milton County Conservatives, and then on Saturday he handily won the 6th Congressional District Poll for State Senate.
In Saturday morning's debate, Belle Isle articulated his core conservative message and explained the differences between the candidates as a choice of paths for the Republican Party, rather than a person. Those in attendance overwhelmingly responded: In the Senate poll, Belle Isle won 182 votes, compared to 76 for John Albers and 51 for Brandon Beach - giving Belle Isle 59% of the vote in the three-way poll.
"In a local race like this senate campaign, the willingness of grassroots supporters to turn out and work for you has a huge impact - and my supporters came out in big numbers today," said Belle Isle. "Having so many people willing to give up a weekend day for you shows we have real grassroots workers who will turn out real votes for us in July."
Belle Isle also picked up the endorsement of the Milton County Conservatives, a group started since the 2008 presidential election as part of the conservative movement against expansionist government under President Obama. The group's statement in support of Belle Isle read as follows:
"Mr. Belle Isle is supported due to his conservative voting record. As Alpharetta City Councilman, Mr. Belle Isle was one of the only members of council to vote NO twice for the City of Alpharetta to receive federal stimulus dollars incorrectly described as a grant, citing the difference of required debt repayment by future generations. He proposed zero-based budgeting for the city, combined with a provision that departments project operating at 85% of revenue for advance evaluation of costs to taxpayers. He fought successfully for tax cuts for homeowners. With the core values of "limited government and local control" he has led the charge toward re-creation of Milton County with his group Milton County Rising... David Belle Isle is the true conservative in the race for State Senate D-56."
Vote David Belle Isle, conservative for State Senate.
