Christina Jeffrey Calls On Inglis to Withdraw
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: December 19, 2009
CONTACT: Bill Welch (864) 275-8801
Christina Jeffrey today called on Congressman Inglis to step out of the race to represent South Carolina’s 4th district in 2011-12.
Responding to a letter Mr. Inglis sent to supporters in which he endorsed an opponent for his seat, and said, “If I had to lose this race, I’d want to lose to ….a committed Believer who’s in this race for all the right reasons,” Jeffrey stated:
“I was delighted to hear Congressman Inglis finally recognize how well SC would be served by having someone who is committed to the principles of conservatism representing the people of our district. If he really does recognize how valuable these principles are, then we should be hearing apologies for things he’s said and done that do not reflect his new position, such as his opposition to Congressional efforts to support the words ‘Under God’ in the Pledge of Allegiance and to conservative media outlets, Fox News and WORD Radio.
“But I have to be heartened to hear my opponent himself acknowledge that the people of our district would be extremely well served by a committed believer, that is, by someone like me. Thus, I am calling on him to make an honest man of himself and withdraw from the race,” Jeffrey said.
Maria Brady, a SC Tea Party Organizer from Boiling Springs, and a former Inglis supporter who now supports Jeffrey, notes that “it is odd that Inglis sent this endorsement only to conservatives. Could it be that he is trying to cover-up his liberal tendencies by praising his weakest opponent as a “committed Believer?”
Inglis watchers are contrasting his recent cooing to conservative Christian voters with his criticism of the “hard right” last month, and also of Congressman Joe Wilson (a Christian gentleman).
