Sadly, we all know the tragic milestone of U.S. deaths in Iraq.
As I think about the honorable sacrifices of our military families today, I'd be remiss to not remind you all why my opponent, Republican Robin Hayes, must be retired.
If anyone has ever doubted that Robin Hayes would say or do anything to get through just one more election cycle, take a look at his remarks on the Iraq War just days after narrowly clinging to his seat by 330 votes in 2006.
Full size image here.
"Most of our forces will be out by 2008" promised a humbled Robin Hayes in December of 2006.
Now, here's Robin Hayes in July 2007 (with no election on his mind) voting against a bill that would have done just that.
As the election of 2008 approaches, what will Robin Hayes say next? We should all be "flat-out, completely and horizontally opposed" to a 6th term for Robin Hayes. The struggling working folks and military families of my District simply can't afford two more years of his double talk.
And you know what that means. I need your support, now more than ever as the end of the quarter fast approaches.
Please help me tell the real story of Robin Hayes' stories to the voters of my District. With your support at this critical time, we will turn North Carolina's 8th District blue and take our Country back!
