Cathy Cox held a press conference on the steps of the Georgia State Capitol this morning to address the blatant lies and reckless disregard for the truth in Mark Taylor’s latest television advertisement.
Cox reiterated her commitment to moving Georgia forward in education, and made it clear that she will not back down from her solemn vow to protect universal pre-kindergarten and the HOPE scholarship for generations to come. Cox believes deeply in the importance of these programs, which have helped hundreds of thousands of Georgians earn an education, realize their potential, and give back to their communities, and she has backed up that belief with thirteen years of unwavering support for the HOPE Scholarship.
Cox also corrected the Big Lie Mark Taylor has been telling the voters of Georgia – that prior to her service in the Georgia Legislature, as a private citizen, Cox voted against creating the Georgia Lottery – by clearly stating that she personally voted for the creation of the Georgia Lottery and the full funding of HOPE scholarship.
I also hear there is a new ad in the works responding to Taylor’s latest punch. These two really are going to tear each other apart.
