Georgia Democrat Rep. Vernon Jones shocked the nation recently by endorsing Trump for 2020.
Shortly after that, he received numerous threats and said he was going to resign.
Now he has changed his mind, mainly because he has gotten an outpouring of support from Trump supporters.

Georgia Democrat retracts resignation: ‘I will not allow the Democrats to bully me into submission’
The Georgia Democrat who said he would step down after endorsing President Trump for reelection retracted his resignation Thursday.
“I will not allow the Democrats to bully me into submission,” state Rep. Vernon Jones said.
Jones announced on Twitter that he would remain in office for the remainder of his term after receiving support for his endorsement, which he said was “emotional” and “motivational.”
“I thought about it, and I talked to my family, and I talked to my supporters. Because of what you did for me, I am going to remain on the battlefield,” he said in a video posted with the tweet.
“I am going to complete my term. I am going to continue to put my country before my party, and I’m going to do everything I can to get Donald J. Trump reelected,” he added.

Yesterday, I announced my intentions to resign from my office. But shortly thereafter, the outpour of support I received was too great for me to ignore.
I will not allow the Democrats to bully me into submission. I will not let them win.

Thank you for helping me reach 100k followers.
The Left has came at me with everything they’ve got – for simply daring to stray off the plantation – but you all have embraced me with so much love and so much support.
