Today, Michelle Nunn, CEO of Points of Light and daughter of Georgia Senator Sam Nunn, announced her bid for U.S. Senate.
Georgians deserve an honest campaign, focused on the issues. But now that Michelle has stepped up to run, we know the attacks and outright lies will be relentless.
In fact, they’ve already begun.
That’s why Better Georgia needs your support today to hold candidates and those who support them accountable for running fair, issue-focused campaigns.
Some people will do anything to win.
You don’t have to take our word for it. Just ask Sen. Max Cleland.
Sen. Cleland is a Purple Heart recipient who lost three limbs serving our country in Vietnam, but that didn’t stop radical, corporate-funded conservatives from comparing this hero to Osama bin Laden and Saddam Hussein.
They claimed he lacked the courage to lead.
The truth is, they lacked the courage to allow the voters to decide an election based on facts rather than lies. Conservative millionaires created ads like the baseless attack against Sen. Cleland to confuse and mislead voters.
This year, Better Georgia will make sure these kinds of attacks are seen for what they are: hogwash.
Everyone agrees that Georgia is rapidly trending more and more progressive. Conservatives, desperate to stay in power, will resort to vile tactics.
Millions of dollars are already flowing into Georgia because radical rightwing conservatives and the consultants they pay are desperate to add another United States Senator to their trophy wall.
Today, with a contribution of just $8, you can send a message that this year we will not allow vicious, baseless attacks to go unanswered.
We know it will be a tough fight.
The team responsible for the 2004 “swift boat” attack against Sen. John Kerry is already in Georgia, working for Karen Handel’s Senate campaign.
But this time, we’re not going to let them get away with it.
You should know that Better Georgia isn’t afraid of these kinds of fights. We will be here to push back.
With your support, we’ll fight for a fair, issue-focused Senate race.
With your support, we’ll rally progressive voters statewide to stand for progressive values.
