Senate hopefuls don't tell where they stand
"Don't Ask, Don't Tell" seems to be the position of some of the candidates in this year's U.S. Senate race when it comes to "Don't Ask, Don't Tell." Of the seven qualified candidates, only four have stated a clear position on the proposed repeal of the law.
For Georgia Democrats, the issue carries some risk: By taking a position, they'll either offend rural conservatives or alienate gay voters, who have become an important part of the party's base.
Here's what the candidates say (or don't say) about "Don't Ask, Don't Tell":
Saxby Chambliss (Republican) – Against the repeal.
Allen Buckley (Libertarian) – Advocates a "Don't Ask, Can Tell" policy, and leaving any disciplinary action up to the military's discretion.
Dale Cardwell (Democrat) – It is time to review "Don't Ask, Don't Tell."
Vernon Jones (D) – Against "persecution" based upon sexual orientation. No specific position on "Don't Ask, Don't Tell."
Rand Knight (D) – A spokesman said he supports the repeal.
Josh Lanier (D) – Supports repeal and points to the shortage of Arabic linguists as a reason.
Jim Martin (D) – Wouldn't respond to CL inquires.
