Gingrey Goes Negative

Senate candidate Phil Gingrey is out with a new ad called “The Moderates,” bashing his opponents Karen Handel, Jack Kingston and David Perdue:

 
Handel is called out for her past support of LGBT groups, an issue that was also raised in her 2010 governor try. Kingston is knocked for his supposed surrender to Obamacare, and Perdue for saying he supported Common Core.

    I think it’s really important to note that pretty much no one in the LGBT community would refer to Karen Handel as “supportive.” (Though the ad is pretty gross, and if Gingrey really thinks that you can “promote teenage homosexuality” – what kind of a doctor is he? Science pretty much debunked that myth years ago…)

    Looks to me like acts of desperation of one who sees his candidacy going down the toilet perhaps??

    Desperate move by Congressmen Gingrey. He’s poling 4/5, and has no accomplishments in congress, so he has to retort false attacks.

    Oh Phil, beating up on your opponent who support LBGT youth is so 2010.

    Is anyone else getting the impression deep down he really just wanted to leave Congress after this year? I live in Cobb and it appears he’s done his level best to run the most piss poor campaign statewide that I’ve ever seen.

    Is this the political equivalent of death by cop? Run poorly for an office you really don’t want to hold just so you don’t have to run for your current office again? Run to resign, is this a thing?

    Don’t let the door hit you on your way out of the Cannon House Office Building.

    Is it too late for Phil to go to law school and become a prosecutor?…..

    …..’cause that ad has “D.A.” written all over it. #facepalm

    I think Phil Gingery is toast but please explain to us how Karen Handel could allegedly cast a vote with the Fulton County Commission in April of 2008 when she was serving as the GA Secretary of State???? Time for a major Fact Check!!!

      This is a typical campaign tactic this close to election day. Tell complete fabrications, because there’s so little time left the opposition won’t be able to counter it – since they’ve already made their final TV/radio/web buys. Sneaky, but like I said, it’s too late for Phil. He’s been done for months now, but his consultants want to keep getting paid. Honestly, his campaign was always doomed because of Gingrey himself: unwilling to do the things his pro consultants suggested. Why else did Chip Lake and Gingrey’s entire campaign staff bail out on him last year? They knew he was going to steer the campaign into an iceberg, or more accurately drive it around in circles with the left-hand blinker on… lol.

    • SFG, I think you need glasses or something. The ad clearly says Handel’s vote was April of 2006, Not April of 2008. Watch again, pause it, and then make it full screen. This is what happens when you drink fluoridated water!
