Yet again Democratic Senate nominee Michelle Nunn is featuring former President George H.W. Bush in a TV ad, and yet again he is asking her to stop doing so.
Nunn’s latest spot again references her work with Points of Light, and also shows images of former Presidents Bill Clinton and George W. Bush.
But the elder Bush endorsed David Perdue for Senate weeks ago. Months before that, he called on Nunn to cease using his image in her campaign’s advertising. He also raised money to support the eventual Republican nominee while Perdue was locked in a runoff with Rep. Jack Kingston.
A Bush spokesman again called on Nunn to stop.
“Michelle and her team have been clearly, repeatedly and consistently told that President Bush did not want them to use his photo as part of this campaign,” stated spokesman Jim McGrath. “Apparently, the Nunn team feels they can repeatedly disregard the former president’s wishes, which is very disappointing because it’s so disrespectful.”
Some folks can’t take a hint.
