The full transcript follows:
“I’m Chris Carr.
Working for Senator Isakson, I learned the importance of public service.
Governor Deal asked me to lead his team on economic development.
We brought 84,000 jobs to Georgia.
And after the Governor appointed me Attorney General,
I prosecuted those who prey on the elderly, protected our kids by fighting human trafficking,
And every day we’re combating the tragedy of opioid addiction.
And that’s exactly what I’ll continue to do as your Attorney General —
Carr served as campaign manager for Isakson’s successful, record-setting U.S. Senate campaign in 2004, as Deputy Chief of Staff for Isakson from 2004 to 2007 and Chief of Staff from 2007 to 2013.
He was then tapped by Deal to serve as Commissioner of the Georgia Department of Economic Development, and served in that role from 2013 to 2016. Under Carr’s leadership, Georgia was named the “number one state in which to do business” three years in a row by Site Selection magazine. In 2014, the department was named the number one economic development agency in the country by the International Economic Development Council. Also during Carr’s tenure, the department helped facilitate 1,069 projects across the state that represent approximately $14.4 billion in investment and the creation of more than 84,000 jobs.
As Attorney General since November 2016, Carr has made protecting Georgia a priority by cracking down on elder abuse, protecting children from human trafficking and combating the opioid epidemic.
