National Republican Trust Urges Georgians To Stop Obama/Martin

WE'VE MOVED! Democratic Convention Watch is now at

While watching the WAGA-TV Sunday morning public affairs program, "The Georgia Gang," the following ad appeared on my t.v. screen:

"Why Do Liberals Want to Tell You How to Vote?"

On the front page of the Republican group's website, the Executive Director of the National Republican Trust writes, "If the Democrats defeat Republican Senator Saxby Chambliss, they will be very close to getting the 60 votes they need in the Senate to pass Obama’s radical legislation."

"Obama and the Congressional Democrats must be denied the 60 votes," the letter reads [Source:, "Stop Obama in Georgia!", November 23, 2008].

In addition to this new television spot, the Columbus Ledger-Enquirer reported back on November 18th that the National Republican Trust has "been spending heavily on online banner ads, e-mail and direct mail" [Source: Columbus Ledger-Enquirer, "Groups spend to sway Ga. Senate runoff", November 18, 2008].
