Former AZ Governor Doug Ducey became known for doing little to nothing to investigate, uncover or resolve the election concerns surrounding 2020's elections and the 2022 elections in Arizona.
Citizens for Free Enterprise is registered with the Secretary of State in GA:
Citizens for a Greater Georgia, Inc. is registered with Georgia's Secretary of State and lists Kelly Loeffler as CFO and Secretary and John F. Kennedy as CEO. (Kennedy is currently Chairman of the Georgia Assembly Republican Caucus - the organization that expelled Senator Colton Moore after he called for a Special Session to investigate Fani Willis' actions in the 19 indictments surrounding the challenge of the 2020 elections.)
Information has also come to light that indicates the Citizens for Free Enterprise Super PAC may have location ties to Bulloch County GOP/GOP, Inc. That organization is led by Chairman Lawton Sack.
To summarize, a Super PAC, registered with the Federal Elections Commission (FEC) as Citizens for Free Enterprise, and run by the former Governor of Arizona Doug Ducey, is operating here in Georgia.
As described by the National Review. Ducey was termed out of office in November 2022 after the highly contested election between his Secretary of State, Katie Hobbs, and popular Kari Lake. During the election, Ducey attended endorsement activities for Lake's Republican challenger, while splitting his time in Georgia campaigning for Governor Kemp, as The Hill explains.
Ducey appears to be expanding his “franchise-like” operation throughout Georgia with his Executive Director, J.P. Twist. On LinkedIn, it appears that Ducey has staff nearly exclusively in Georgia and Arizona. Garrison Belk of Atlanta left a position with Kelly Loeffler’s Citizens for Greater Georgia enterprise to become the State Director for Ducey's CFE operation in Georgia.
