Yesterday I posted that the GCC’s voter guide to the 10th CD special election had been released, and called attention to the two questions each (out of 46) on which three GOP candidates — Greene, Myers, and Underwood — had broken from their peers. One of these was the question of whether or not the candidates would “Vote to override a presidential veto of pro-life legislation,” a question to which only Bill Greene aswered “no.”
This morning, he made an appearance in the comments of that post to correct the record, saying:
I’m almost positive that on the GCC’s question, “Would you Vote to override a presidential veto of pro-life legislation?”, I answered Yes. However, they have me down as No. Since I didn’t keep a copy of the survey, I can’t be sure that I didn’t mistakenly mark it wrong; however, let it be publicly known (as far as posting on Peach Pundit is public 🙂 : I WOULD vote to override a presidential veto of pro-life legislation.
I am 100% pro-life, from conception to natural death.
Below is the question and the candidates’ responses, pasted directly from the GCC voter guide. As you see, Greene’s answer is, in fact, listed as “no.”
|27. The powers of the presidency include the right to veto legislation. Would you Vote to override a presidential veto of pro-life legislation?|
|Jim Whitehead (R)||Bill Greene (R)||Erik M. Underwood (R)||Jim Sendelbach (L)||Nate Pulliam (R)|
|Yes||No||Yes||No Response||No Response|
|Evita Paschall (D)||Mark Myers (R)||Paul Broun (R)||Denise Freeman (D)||James Marlow (D)|
|Yes||Yes||Yes||No Response||No Response|
Whether the “No” answer, which he does not agree with, was Mr. Greene’s mistake or the GA Christian Coalition’s, we appreciate his taking the time to come to Peach Pundit to set the record straight.
