» The Top Spot » CD-6 candidate throws barbs at GOP...
While many of the candidates to replace Tom Price in Congressional District 6 seem focused on weakening the position of Democrat frontrunner Jon Ossoff, at least one GOP contender has just taken aim at four of his Republican opponents.
Trump Diversity leader Bruce LeVell has made the denial of PAC and special interest money a central part of his campaign. That’s why, on Wednesday, LeVell threw barbs at Bob Gray recently gaining an endorsement from Club for Growth. Along the way, he also swung at former Secretary of State Karen Handel, former State Senator Judson Hill, and former State Senator Dan Moody.
Here’s his full statement:
“Bob Gray and his staff of NeverTrumpers have been lying to the Trump voters from the start of this campaign. Now Bob’s proven it by taking the endorsement of President Trump’s number one enemy: the Club for Growth PAC.
Bob Gray and my other opponents are all the same: beholden to PACs and Special Interests because they’ve taken their money. Karen Handel and her VIEW PAC money, Judson Hill and his FRC Action PAC money, Dan Moody and his international law firm Troutman Sanders PAC money. And now we can include Bob Gray on the list with his Anti-Trump Club for Growth PAC money.
I am the only candidate who has been loyal to President Trump since Day One. I am the only candidate who has not and will not take PAC or Special Interest money. To the homeowners, small business owners, and voters of the Georgia 6th Congressional District I say this: I am the only Candidate who is for the People and by the People – I will not accept any Special Interest or PAC money.
The voters will remember this on election day.”
Bob Gray’s campaign shot back at LeVell.
“We’re focused on defeating the Democrat, not any of the candidates polling below Lindsey Graham,” Gray campaign consultant Joash Thomas said.
Meanwhile, Judson Hill’s campaign also jabbed at Gray.
“We agree that Bob’s memory is gray when it comes to his support for Trump. We’d all like to see all the anti-Trump social media posts that Bob has scrubbed from his social media so he can try to ride the president’s coattails,” said Hill campaign manager Ian Caraway. “That said, we appreciate Bruce’s reminder to voters that Judson has received the endorsement of the Family Research Council, the gold standard among social conservatives.”
A February zpolitics/Clout Research poll found that Democrat Ossoff leads in the special election with 32 percent of voter support. Behind him is former Handel, who holds 25 percent support, while Gray was favored by 11 percent of respondents. The poll also included former State Senator Judson Hill (nine percent), former State Senator Dan Moody (two percent), and Trump diversity coalition leader Bruce LeVell (one percent).
The CD-6 special election takes place on April 18.
