PoliticalWire: Amy McGrath (D), the Marine veteran running against Rep. Andy Barr (R-KY), has a new ad which ties the congressman to President Trump.
“There are times when politicians might have to make a difficult choice: do you stand with the president, or do you stand with the country? Right now is one of those times. Every Republican congressman and senator has to make a choice. Standing up to the president may not be what they signed up for, but when the president is in solidarity with white supremacists and Nazis, those members of Congress have to stand up and tell him he’s wrong.”
They need to tell him that’s not what America stands for. This is not what soldiers, airmen, sailors, and Marines laid down their lives for in World War II. And this is not the kind of president our country deserves.
We need leaders willing to sand up and do what’s right for our country, no matter who the president is or what party they’re in. That’s why I’m running for Congress against Andy Barr in Kentucky. He has yet to condemned the president on anything. Put another way, it reminds me of a book I’ve read to my kids. Someone needs to be willing to say that the emperor has no clothes. Too many politicians haven’t had the guts to say that. It’s time they did.
