DPG Chair DuBose Porter’s Statement on GOP Debate in California
Atlanta, GA – Democratic Party of Georgia Chair DuBose Porter released the following statement on last night’s Republican presidential debate.
“Republicans have held two debates—four if you count the C-list—and Georgians are still waiting to hear what exactly the GOP will do to strengthen and grow the middle class.
“I’ve been in politics for a while now, and I’ve heard a lot of crazy things come from the Republican Party. But what has the GOP come to when they have three hours to lay out a substantive vision for our country and instead choose to attack women, brag about who could most quickly send our kids to war, take away healthcare and villainize the Hispanic community?
“Next year, voters will have a clear choice for their Commander-in-Chief. And I am confident that Georgia will embrace our Democratic nominee—someone who fights for workers, fights to lift Georgians out of poverty and into the middle class, fights for pay equity, and fights to level the playing field.”
