The 2022 elections must return to the House and Senate strong majorities dedicated to safeguarding the rights of all American citizens, to rebuilding trust in public service, and to restoring confidence in the United States around the globe. To that end, the Steady State, a group of former national security professionals, is announcing our endorsements of outstanding candidates, including Marcus Flowers, who share our values, our commitment to the United States, and have strong national security experience.

Marcus Flowers is running for Congress in Georgia’s 14th District. Marcus has spent his entire career defending the United States: Marcus has served almost 30 years as a soldier, contractor, or government official.

Marcus worked to protect US national security in combat zones and on four continents. His values reflect those of his district: duty, integrity, service and a fierce love of America and its Constitution. Marcus swore an oath at 18 years old to “Protect and Defend” the Constitution, and he lives up to that oath every day. While overseas, Marcus saw, first hand, the damage done by extremism and disinformation, and he WILL NOT let Marjorie Taylor Greene take us down the same path in America. Her conspiracy theories may have made her famous, but they haven’t done a thing to help the people in this district.

Marcus supports bi-partisanship and bridge-building, and he does not endorse vilifying political opponents. Marcus supports the right to privacy, and is pro choice, because he does not believe that the government belongs in peoples’ bedrooms. He will work tirelessly to support issues that will help the citizens of his district; issues on which Americans fundamentally agree. As a veteran, Marcus is focused on support to our military and aid to veterans. And, as a citizen, Marcus is dedicated to quality healthcare, a clean environment, social justice, voting rights and education reform to better the lives of the people in GA 14.

Marcus is encouraged and inspired by the volunteers and grassroots donors who have already joined his campaign. With that kind of army, we cannot lose.


Founded after the 2016 Presidential election, the Steady State now includes over 200 national security professionals. Steady State members include former intelligence officers, specialists in defense policy, diplomats, and Congressional staff. We are pleased to endorse Marcus Flowers and other candidates for the House and Senate who will continue to work tirelessly to strengthen America’s democracy and place in the world.
