Chambliss appears to be the first Senator to put out an ad explaining his vote on the bill, joining a small number of House Members — including Georgia Democratic Rep. Jim Marshall — who have felt compelled to release ads on the issue.
In the 30-second ad — which began running in Atlanta on Tuesday and will run statewide starting Wednesday — Chambliss argues that, “Businesses are failing, Georgians are losing their jobs, their homes, their retirements and their life savings. Congress had to act. I’m as mad as you are about what happened, but doing nothing would have been a disaster. The rescue bill is a strong bipartisan effort to fix the economy and to protect your financial future.”
Hey Saxby, let’s have a serious moment here. When you decided to throw Rob under the bus, you hired Sam Nunn’s old guy to be your Chief of Staff.
Your own staffers in Washington and here in Georgia dislike the guy. Other Republican Senators tell me they think your Chief of Staff has screwed you up and led you astray on a variety of issues.
I don’t know the guy at all, but a number of our mutual friends, your staffers, and some of your fellow Senators tell me the guy is not serving you well.
If you can make it out of this election, I suggest you replace him with someone else. How about with a Republican?
