Republican opponent Keith Fimian released the following statement.
“It didn’t take long for the DNC and labor union bosses to payback Gerry Connolly for his support of their budget-busting big government healthcare takeover,” Fimian said. “It is clear who Gerry Connolly serves—apparently anyone who promises him campaign contributions or political favors.”
“Gerry Connolly was there for the trillion dollar stimulus boondoggle, he was there for job-killing cap-and-trade, and most recently he was there for healthcare. In fact, he’s been there for Nancy Pelosi 97 percent of the time,” Fimian said. “It should come as no surprise that Pelosi and the DNC would payback a dependable liberal like Gerry Connolly.”
“Given the thousands of dollars labor union bosses are spending on advertising praising Gerry Connolly, it is clear that Connolly will be a strong supporter of job destroying forced unionization,” Fimian added. “Card check will destroy jobs, and Gerry Connolly and other liberal career politicians will vote against the wishes and interests of the voters because of their desire to win re-election, regardless of the consequences for our nation.”
