Tennessee Young Democrats Congratulate Sen. CampfieldOn the victory of his candidate for President, Newt Gingrich.Nashville January 21, 2012: Sean Braisted, President of the Tennessee Young Democrats, would like to extend our congratulations to Sen. Stacey Campfield, Co-chair of the Newt Gingrich for Tennessee campaign, for his candidate's overwhelming success in the South Carolina Republican primary.Earlier this week Mitt Romney's campaign had stated, 'On Saturday, South Carolina picks a President.' “While we disagree with that assessment, we are happy to acknowledge South Carolina's historic role in selecting the nominee of the Republican party,” said Braisted. “As the Republican voters of South Carolina have thoroughly rejected the candidacy of Mitt Romney, we look forward to a debate between President Obama and nominee Newt Gingrich.”“We look forward to a debate between Newt Gingrich who supports a budget busting tax cut for the wealthiest one percent, versus President Obama's belief that we should have a tax policy that helps working families and asks the wealthy to pay their fair share in order to responsibly close the deficit.”“We look forward to a debate between Newt Gingrich's desire to have all poor Americans become janitors versus President Obama's efforts to create a competitive education system that prepares young Americans for a 21st century economy and allows all people, regardless of status, the opportunity to compete for the highest paying jobs.”“We look forward to debate between Newt Gingrich's evolving health care views which have currently landed on throwing people off their health insurance and telling sick Americans to fend for themselves, versus President Obama's support for a health insurance system that encourages health insurance participation, enables young adults to continue their insurance while in school, and keeps insurance companies from denying coverage due to pre-existing conditions.”“Whether a debate between Romney or Gingrich, we look forward to advocating for and supporting the President's proposals to empower working families, send more people to college, protect Tennesseans against Wall Street greed, and improve the quality of health insurance for millions of Americans."
