David Abroms, a business executive runs a clean fuel conversion company.

A young Republican newcomer plans to spend $250,000

My name is David Abroms and I’m running for congress because I love this country. I believe we have major problems facing us that will require strong and independent leadership, and I believe it is time for a new generation of conservative leaders.

We keep sending politicians to Washington hoping to fix problems that politicians create. I am not a politician. My whole career has been about solving problems and that is what I want to bring to Washington.

I’m a CPA by trade, but I have always had a passion for energy policy and entrepreneurship. That’s why, after studying the national security, economic and environmental challenges of American dependence on foreign petroleum and its monopoly as a transportation fuel, I started my own business converting vehicles to run on clean, affordable, American natural gas.

Although I started Freedom Fueling Solutions primarily to build a successful business, using my business platform to promote American energy to power our economy and protect our national security was a top priority.

I love being an entrepreneur, and I was not planning on running for office this early in life. However, just as I started my business to help solve our dependence on foreign oil, I now feel the need to use my passions and talents to help solve some of the great challenges facing this country.

This doesn’t sit too well with one veteran Georgia political operative.

Lawton Sack’s sharp and unsolicited advice to David Abroms, the 33-year-old who wants to pump some of his fortune into the 18-man race: “Please, sir, don’t do this.” 

Writing in Georgiapol.com, Sack urged Abroms to ignore consultants who “whisper into the ear of a non-viable candidate and tell them they have a shot.”

He’s familiar with that world. He once led the Bulloch County GOP and served as the 12th District GOP chair, which gave him an entry to the state party’s executive committee and the wider world of operatives lurking in Georgia’s political shadows. Writes Sack:

“PLEASE reconsider. If by some miracle you make the runoff in 8 weeks, then maybe consider using your own money. It is your money and your right to spend it, but you can make a real difference by donating it to charity instead of tossing it into the wind.”

Abroms, we should note, has attracted a top-flight consultant known for an independent streak to advise his campaign: Joel Searby managed Evan McMullin’s 2016 presidential bid. And he said Wednesday he’s not going anywhere:
