Our campaign recently learned that an independent expenditure PAC, aka dark money group, launched attack ads against me. They accused me of being a “liar” and “playing politics.” We don’t know for sure, but it’s likely this PAC is tied to Phil Berger. There’s good news about these ads though.
To be silent is to be complicit. I’ve sat with that sentiment for days. I know not posting on social media about George Floyd may be interpreted as silence and complicity. I also know that saying the wrong thing can be worse. I believe words matter. I see politicians post thoughts and prayers and some believe the sentiment. However, I believe actions matter more.
I first want to acknowledge the anxiety and uncertainty that many of us are feeling right now in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic. The pandemic is affecting us all in many different ways. I will be driving 13 hours each way this weekend to bring my daughter home from college.
Our campaign is quickly adjusting its processes to keep our volunteers and the community safe.
