The Georgia Republican Party issued a presser with a statement from state Chairman John Padgett regarding Senator Jason Carter’s comments claiming that Georgia’s rating by Site Selection Magazine was a “widely-debunked rating”. A rating, mind you, that was affirmed by CNBC the other day.
Chairman Padgett said:
“It’s sad when desperate politicians like Senator Jason Carter attempt to tarnish Georgia’s economic success story for the sake of political gain,” said Georgia Republican Party Chairman John Padgett. “Why would someone who claims to care so much about our state expend so much energy on downplaying rankings and accolades that enhance job creation and investment?
“If Jason Carter really cared as much about Georgia as he claims in his campaign commercials, he would join the millions of Georgians in thanking Governor Deal and our conservative leaders in the Georgia General Assembly for creating an economic environment that’s bringing billions of dollars in investment, millions of jobs, and thousands of new businesses to the Peach State.”
The press release also linked to a response to Carter’s criticism by Peach Pundit patriarch Erick Erickson on his radio show.
