Barrow ‘hasn’t told the truth,’ says NRCC

Pro-GOP group again looks to paint Barrow as pro-choice and out of touch with his district.

Using a compilation of his own ads through the years, the National Republican Congressional Committee today released another spot hitting Rep. John Barrow as out of touch with Georgia voters in his district.

The spot opens with Barrow speaking directly to the camera, saying “I go to Washington to fight for Georgia, and what we believe in.”

“John Barrow runs for re-election saying he shares our conservative values. He hasn’t told the truth,” a female narrator still says, as footage of Barrow continues to roll. “Barrow received a perfect score from the leading pro-abortion group. And John Barrow voted for taxpayer-funded abortions.”

The ad closes by juxtaposing the Blue Dog with President Obama and Nancy Pelosi, saying he “votes with them, not us.”

“Congressman John Barrow isn’t telling Georgia families the truth,” stated NRCC spokeswoman Katie Prill. “In Washington, Barrow votes with Obama on issues like voting for taxpayer-funded abortions, more government spending, Obamacare and the President’s job-destroying agenda. The Barrow-Obama plan is hurting Georgia families.”

Barrow voted against Obamacare, and has co-sponsored bills aimed at unpopular elements of the law, but has yet to sign off on one of the House’s many votes to repeal the law in full.

The ad is reportedly being bolstered with 1,000 point buys in both the Augusta and Savannah media markets.

This week alone Barrow, who is squaring off with Republican businessman Rick Allen, has rolled out endorsements from the National Rifle Association and the National Federation of Independent Businesses. Prior to that, he was endorsed by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.

The latest spot from the NRCC is viewable below the fold.
