U.S. Rep. John Barrow’s recent political ads suggest that he is playing the “middle.” He votes with Republicans 54 percent of the time, but he often talks about how often he voted along his party’s line.
So my question to Rep. Barrow is: Where are his loyalties? If he says, “To the Democratic Party,” then why isn’t he sending that message?
I am an African-American and a Democrat – also a retired soldier of the U.S. Army – and I can honestly say Barrow is a driving force for those of us who are veterans. But we must ask that the real John Barrow please stand up, because we have all been trained to follow a proven and honest leader.
