Well, they tried, and failed.
My opponent, in a desperate attempt to question my integrity, tried to smear my military record by complaining about a flight mission I performed while on military duty at a Perry High School football game in October.
Unfortunately no good deed goes unpunished. My opponent, a career lobbyist who was turning a profit on backroom political deals while I was patrolling the sandy roads of Iraq, decided to attack me for simply doing my job. An investigation conducted by the Army, at taxpayer expense, completely exonerated me.
My opponent has been an insider in Lansing for longer than I have been alive. She has amassed a huge war chest by calling in 40 years of favors from all of her Lansing swamp friends. In fact, she has raised well over $100,000 in just a few months. We have to be ready for more dirty tricks, but with your support of $25, $50, $100 or more I can overcome these underhanded attacks.
I have spent my entire adult life in the Army, so I am battle tested and ready to defend our mid-Michigan values against this liberal assault. But I can’t do it alone. I’m asking for your help and I will make you this commitment in return-I will fight just as hard as your State Senator as I have done as State Representative. I walked 704 miles door to door in 2016 alone, and I’m ready to put it all on the line again in this campaign.
Can I count on your support? Your donation of $25, $50, $100, or more will allow me to fight back.
Ashley and I are so thankful in advance, and rest assured the Barrett Brigade won’t let you down.
