Unwilling to stand on the sidelines as the Sherrill and Webber forces collide, Assemblyman Jay Webber’s (R-26) CD11 Republican Primary opponent today leaped to Webber’s defense.
“Has our political discourse gotten so bad, that we need to drag the children of candidates into political statements about the critical issues impacting our community?” said Ghee, referring to a statement issued by state Senator Nellie Pou (D-35), a backer of CD11 Democratic candidate Mikie Sherrill.
“It’s 2018 and we should all be able to agree on three simple concepts: political corruption is bad and should be repudiated by everyone, regardless of party; everyone deserves equal pay for equal work and government has a responsibility to ensure that; and the family of a candidate for public office is off limits, especially their children.
“This campaign should not be about scoring cheap political points, rather it should be about putting the people we are seeking to serve above partisan politics,” Ghee added. “We need leaders who are dedicated to serving a cause greater than themselves or their party, because the issues at stake in this election are too great to be mired in soundbites and cheap petty politics. Senator Pou owes an immediate and unequivocal apology to the Webber’s for dragging their children into this campaign.”
