Debates and Forums

The last two weeks gave us a great opportunity to showcase the difference between my candidacy and the ones of my opponents. Yes, we’re always fighting the snub from the mainstream media and the lack of fundraising dollars but we definitely have a surplus when it comes to debating. It’s easy when you’re on the right side of the issues.

Our first debate/forum was back on May 23rd in Greene County but we finished the primary season with a flash with five in a two week period. Barry and I were at all of them. Paul made it to three.

The two biggies in the bunch were the one sponsored by the Elberton Star in Elbert County and the AARP debate in Habersham County. All three of us were present for these two and the moderators did a good job of making sure we covered the most critical topics of this campaign.

One thing became apparent during these debates; even a country boy is smart enough to compete with a doctor and a lawyer if his heart is in the right place. I challenge the winner of their primary to debate me in every county in this district. The voters deserve an opportunity to see us in person and hear our views on working to solve real problems in this country.

This campaign is about getting rid of partisan politics in this country. I know it’s an uphill battle but I believe in my heart that it’s a battle worth fighting. Our country is too divided right now and the extreme left and extreme right are to blame. We have to find a way to work together to solve real problems in this country. We must reach across the aisle, look people in the eye, tell them the truth, and get along long enough to do the right thing for our country. I believe this…. I hope you do as well.

Now’s the Time!
