SCGOP’s Dawson: Biden only underscores Obama’s weaknesses

Chairman says Obama running mate brings nothing to the ticket in South Carolina

COLUMBIA, S.C. – South Carolina Republican Party Chairman Katon Dawson today released the following statement on the selection of Joe Biden as Barack Obama’s running mate:

“Barack Obama must have realized he needed a more seasoned candidate to offset his inexperience and questionable judgment on the important issues facing American voters.  But Joe Biden only underscores Obama’s weaknesses.  Biden has a record of raising taxes on hard-working families, voting to fund abortions with tax dollars and voting in favor of strict gun control.  He was one of Obama’s harshest critics during the presidential primary, slamming the junior Illinois senator for cutting funds for our troops and agreeing to meet with the world’s worst tyrants.

“Barack Obama claims to be the ‘change’ candidate, but after four decades in the U.S. Senate his running mate Joe Biden personifies Washington’s failed status quo.  And in South Carolina, Biden brings nothing to the ticket.”
