This past weekend, an article in the Examiner quoted a couple of other candidates in the 2010 GOP Primary for Tennessee’s Fifth District Congressional election misrepresenting some of my positions. So, in order to clear things up, I put together a brief response to the article in order to make sure the voters know my positions on the issues discussed at the GOP meeting Saturday morning.
My remarks are as follows:
“I am sorry to hear that my positions on very important issues were misrepresented by political rivals at an event where I was absent and unable to defend myself with the truth. If people compare what my opponents said about me with what I actually stand for, they will realize that I am the conservative in this race who is best equipped to challenge and defeat Jim Cooper in November.
“My stance on key issues such as illegal immigration, energy and many others are all available on my website at www.hartlineforcongress.com. Any voters who would like to have a detailed response to the specific criticisms leveled by Mr. Schwartz will receive one upon request by emailing me at firstname.lastname@example.org.”
