    Here’s what I want to know. Why can they get away with saying things that are demonstrably false? When asked about the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) Agreement, Woodall responded by saying that we run a trade surplus with every country that we have a free trade agreement with. Wrong! So wrong how could he even believe it’s true. Now we do run a surplus with smaller non-producing free trade partners, like Chile and Australia but we run big trade deficits with producing countries like Mexico, Canada, and South Korea.

  2. Baker says:

    It’s worth a mention of kudos to Mssrs. Woodall and Gingrey for actually showing up for the debates, not a single other Congressional candidate bothered to show.

  3. Jackster says:

    Hank Johnson and John Lewis were both absent.

    both campaign offices don’t know what was more important than making that debate (I called).

    both campaign offices could not confirm or deny if their candidate was going to make the debate as of Friday (I called).

    So to me, this is a simple matter of incumbents not treating their constituents with the respect that they deserve. How pitiful.

    Correct me if I’m wrong, but it just occurred to me that there is no Georgia congressional district this year in which there is a primary race in both parties.
