Jim Martin knocks Chambliss for treatment of veterans

Posted By on Fri, Nov 28, 2008 at 6:05 PM

U.S. Senate Democratic candidate Jim Martin released a new ad today that says incumbent Republican Saxby Chambliss voted against bills that would help military veterans.

Since taking office in 2003, the ad says, Chambliss has voted 23 times against increasing funding for veteran's health care programs. The ad also says the senator voted against the latest GI bill for veterans of Iraq and Afghanistan that would provide full educational benefits to soliders upon their return.

I'll update the post when I hear back from Chambliss' campaign. Expect a blitz of these ads leading up to Tuesday's runoff.
