The Virginia Tea Party Alliance stepped up its efforts to expose the liberal record of Senator Roscoe Reynolds today with the first series of radio ads blasting the Democrat Senator. Reynolds is a supporter of the failed Obama stimulus program, and a supporter of the big labor union AFL-CIO, which has ranked Reynolds’ votes as high as 98% with a lifetime score of 83%. Reynolds has also angered voters with his defeat of the Castle Doctrine legislation that would allow Virginians to protect themselves against criminals who invade their homes.
“Last year, Senator Roscoe Reynolds stood proudly with Barack Obama and backed Obama’s Stimulus Scheme,” the ad notes. “That was then. Today, Roscoe Reynolds is trying to run away from Obama but we won’t forget how Reynolds stood with Obama and how Reynolds backed Obama’s failed stimulus scam,” the announcer continues.
"No wonder Roscoe Reynolds’s got an eighty three percent rating from the AFL-CIO...eighty three percent! No wonder Reynolds wants the Tea Party to stop exposing his liberal record,” referring to a Martinsville Bulletin (9/27/11) story where Reynolds demanded the Tea Party solely concentrate on “Washington Issues.”
“In fact we are,” said Alliance Executive Director Karen Miner Hurd said. “Our ad refers to Senator Reynolds strong and unequivocal support for President Obama and his failed Stimulus Scheme, that has given us a stagnant economy with a 9.1% unemployment rate and massive inflation reflected in $3 plus gasoline prices.”
The ad continues saying that Senator Reynolds has been “Too Liberal. Too Wrong. For Too Long.”
“Reynolds clearly has a very condescending attitude to the Virginians in the tea party movement,” Hurd added. “That attitude is typical of many politicians who don’t want to be accountable for their actions. We have a right to hold our elected officials accountable at all levels of government, and that certainly includes Roscoe Reynolds and the Virginia State Senate”.
The Virginia Tea Party Alliance’s Beyond 21 project has targeted Roscoe Reynolds and 6 other liberal democrats for defeat in the November 8 elections. For more information about the group’s efforts and target list, visit http://beyond21.org.
