GA-SEN: Jim Martin Debuts New Ad. . ."Becky"

WE'VE MOVED! Democratic Convention Watch is now at

In a new ad released today, Jim Martin responds to Saxby Chambliss’ false, personal attacks on Martin’s record protecting children. The truth is that Jim Martin has always fought to protect children and families, because he knows what it’s like to have a child come face-to-face with violent crime.


Martin’s daughter Becky was kidnapped when she was eight years old. Fortunately she was let go, but Martin never forgot the way Becky trembled when she came face-to-face with her kidnapper in court. Over his 18-year tenure in the state legislature and during his service as Commissioner of Georgia’s Department of Human Resources, Martin built a reputation as a leading advocate for children.
