Carter advocates for Bulldog’s White House visit

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Rep. Earl L. “Buddy” Carter (R-GA) led a bipartisan, bicameral letter to bring the University of Georgia Bulldogs Football Team up to the White House in honor of their 2023 National Championship win.

Despite winning the National Championship in 2022, the Bulldogs were not able to be hosted at the White House due to COVID-19 restrictions, adding to the importance of this visit for the repeat champions.

In the
letter, the Members write: “For years, the college football national champion has had the high honor of being hosted, by the President, at the White House… It is our hope that this repeat championship team can join the many teams prior that have been honored by the President.”

Joining Rep. Carter on the letter are Sen. Raphael Warnock (D-GA), Sen. Jon Ossoff (D-GA), and Reps. Barry Loudermilk (R-GA), Henry C. “Hank” Johnson (D-GA), Austin Scott (R-GA), Sanford Bishop (D-GA), Rick Allen (R-GA), Nikema Williams (D-GA), Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA), David Scott (D-GA), Drew Ferguson (R-GA), Lucy McBath (D-GA), Andrew Clyde (R-GA), Mike Collins (R-GA), and Rich McCormick, M.D. (R-GA).
