ATLANTA – The campaign for investment manager Jim Barksdale, Democratic nominee for U.S. Senate, today responded to a false Republican Party attack on his stance to combat terrorism. In June the Atlanta Journal Constitution quoted Jim saying, “Terrorism is real and suspected terrorists should not be able to buy guns to kill Americans.”
Campaign manager Dave Hoffman issued the following reaction:
Senator Isakson’s war in Iraq cost thousands of American lives and added trillions to our debt while creating the power vacuum and chaos that gave rise to ISIS.
But the Isakson didn’t stop there.
Isakson’s support for bad foreign trade deals, tax breaks allowing corporations to outsource our jobs, and votes to deregulate Wall Street has hurt our economy. His bad policies and eight votes to increase the debt ceiling has helped drive up the national debt to over $18 trillion, threatening our nation with more economic decline.
Jim Barksdale believes ISIS terrorists are our enemy and should be dealt with accordingly.
Jim also believes if our nation grows any weaker economically thanks to more of Isakson’s destabilizing decisions, we’ll have a lot more enemies and it will be a lot harder to fight them.
It is time for new leadership in Washington.
