Elkhart, IN- In response to a controversial attack ad released by Democratic Candidate Brendan Mullen, Elkhart Air Force Veteran Bill Rohman released the following statement on behalf of Republican Jackie Walorski:
“As a veteran, I am deeply disappointed that a fellow veteran would condone the name-calling aired in his attack ad. We are all Americans, and to engage in such rhetoric is inappropriate for this political race. Jackie Walorski has a record of supporting veterans during her time in the state legislature and salutes members of the Armed Forces for their dedicated service to this great country,” said Rohman.
The video features a Mullen surrogate accusing Walorski of being “un-American” after the release of her fact-based ad labeling Brendan Mullen as a Washington DC insider. Walorski’s campaign commercial claims Mullen is a DC insider based on the fact that he was recruited to run for Congress by Washington Democrats and has received massive campaign contributions from liberal special interest groups including Nancy Pelosi and labor unions.
Walorski never mentions Mullen’s service record in any part of her ad.
