The bus stopped in Macon and Statesboro on Saturday as part of a 48-state, 100-city tour, and will go on to stops in Florida today and Monday, said Rachel Taylor, Steele spokeswoman. It is slated to wrap up in mid-October.
Scott hopped on just before it came into Macon.
A Tifton businessman, Scott blasted Democrats, along with his opponent Marshall, over poor financial leadership. He said debt reduction and fiscal responsibility, much like that of a small businessman, is the way to lower unemployment.
“Move over Nancy, America wants to get back to work,” Scott told a crowd of about 50 gathered outside the Republican headquarters. “(America) wants to say no to an increase in the national debt, and we are not going to put that off on our grandchildren.”
Many times, Scott and Steele lobbed the criticism that Marshall is a lapdog of Pelosi in the House. Pelosi-crat was a term used to indicate the four-term 8th District congressman voted consistently with Pelosi.
