In the ad, Suzette Ezell says, “My husband, Mike, is our Sheriff, and now he’s running for Congress. He’s been a law enforcement officer for 40 years. He’s also a beekeeper. Mike is fearless. As Sheriff, he cleaned up corruption, saved taxpayers millions of dollars, and he’ll do the same in Washington. After you’ve been shot at, the last thing you’re afraid of is a swarm of bees…or liberal politicians in Congress.”


“I’m excited about starting our television ad campaign today,” said Sheriff Ezell. “For more than a year, I’ve been working hard on the campaign trail to tell voters about my experience in law enforcement because we need someone who will show up, speak up and stand up for our conservative values every day in Congress.”


Ezell started his campaign for Congress in April, 2021, and announced his campaign’s County Chairs in every county in December, 2021. Ezell was the first candidate to file his qualifying paperwork for this year’s Republican primary election which will be held on June 7, 2022.
