Dem Senate Candidates: Special Interest $ For Me But Not For Thee

Today, Sen. Kay Hagan (D-NC) and Michelle Nunn (D-GA) revealed a stunning degree of hypocrisy when it came to outside groups and campaign finance.

First, Hagan released a campaign video attacking “outsiders” while claiming she is their top target because she is “putting North Carolina first.”

However, back in 2008, Hagan refused to accept Sen. Elizabeth Dole’s (R-NC) proposal to condemn third-party groups from running ads during their campaign. In addition, Hagan attacked Dole for voting with President Bush, stating, “voting 92% of time with the President, whether you support him or not, doesn’t work here in North Carolina.”

HAGAN: “It is time for someone to reach across party lines and finally get something done in this country. Voting 92% of time with the president, whether you support him or not, doesn’t work here in North Carolina.”

As it turns out, in 2013, Hagan has actually voted with President Obama 96 percent of the time.

And in Georgia, it was reported today that a 527 Super PAC, “Georgians Together,” will be backing Michelle Nunn’s Senate campaign.

But it was just last month that Nunn named ending dark, unlimited Super PAC spending in elections as one of five tenets in her supposed “good government” campaign platform. One might assume that Nunn will rush to the presses to denounce this group.

Both Nunn and Hagan think they can get away with saying one thing and doing another. Voters shouldn’t be fooled by their double talk.
