Wright McLeod’s First TV Ad For GA-12

Earlier this week we featured TV ads for Rick Allen and Maria Sheffield. Wright McLeod is also up on TV, with the following ad running “on broadcast and cable television across the 12th district.”

Because I’m late getting this posted, I’ll grant the McLeod campaing a free press release announcing the endorsement from the Combat Veterans for Congress PAC as compensation:

AUGUSTA, Ga. – Wright McLeod, Republican candidate for Georgia’s 12th Congressional District, today announced an endorsement from Combat Veterans for Congress PAC. The PAC selected McLeod based on his fiscally conservative background, belief in limited government, and commitment to defend and abide by the United States Constitution.

Captain Joseph John, Co-Founder and Chairman of the Combat Veterans for Congress PAC, said McLeod “is a Constitutional Conservative candidate who will work to rein in the out of control spending by the Obama Administration. He will work to unleash the private sector to grow once again, create jobs, and stimulate private sector business investment.”

“It’s a great honor to be endorsed by Combat Veterans for Congress PAC because the men and women behind this PAC know firsthand what it’s like to face combat situations in defense of our great Country, and they understand the dramatic change needed in Washington in order to protect the Country for future generations. I’m grateful for their service and support,” said McLeod.

Combat Veterans for Congress is a PAC that supports the election of fiscally conservative combat veterans to Congress who will control spending, defend and preserve the Constitution, and encourage free market growth. They have previously endorsed candidates such as Senators John McCain and Mark Kirk and Congressmen Duncan Hunter, Michael Grimm, and Allen West.

McLeod has previously been endorsed by FreedomWorks PAC and Georgia Right to Life. The addition of Combat Veterans for Congress shows that groups committed to constitutionally limited government understand that Wright McLeod is the true fiscal conservative in the 12th District race.

McLeod is an Augusta native. He graduated from the United States Naval Academy, retired as a Commander after 20 years of service and now runs a successful real estate law firm. After earning a Bachelor of Science degree in Political Science from the Naval Academy, Wright earned a Masters degree in National Security Studies from Georgetown University and a Juris Doctorate from the University of Georgia School of Law. Wright and his wife Sheri are proud parents of three daughters: Collier, Margaret and Grace. The McLeods attend the Church of the Good Shepherd.

    I’ve seen McLeod’s ad twice and Rick Allen’s ad twice within the past two hours on WSAV and WTOC out of Savannah.

    Ok, wait a slim second! From what is this PAC basing its assertions? Do they have any sound proof that the man has a “fiscally conservative background?!” The man has never held public office, and has no transparent record proving that he is in fact a fiscal conservative. Based on previous news, the man has supported, endorsed, and donated to liberal candidates and voted for democrats like Obama and Clinton! He claims to believe in “limited government.” All we have to go by is his word, and that means practically NOTHING in politics, especially considering the man lied about voting for Bill Richardson in the democratic presidential primary and has already been accused of violating campaign laws. So he is committed to defend and abide by the United States Constitution? So are all the other Republican candidates running in this race. McLeod has no substantive history or clear record to validate this endorsement. It means nothing.

    Now I see why this guy is getting battered so bad from the other candidates, he is clearly above the rest. I don’t see how a guy that served his country in the Navy for 20 years could have bad intentions. I haven’t met the guy…but still.

      You’re just trolling for someone to invoke Godwin’s Law, aren’t you?

    From Wikipedia:
    It is considered poor form to raise such a comparison arbitrarily with the motive of ending the thread. lol
