Adam Fogel at the Palmetto Scoop has the new ad run in support of Lindsey, exposing the group out to destroy him.
“…The AEA attacks are falsely claiming that Graham “supports a national energy tax called cap-and-trade.”
The truth is that Graham has made his position clear: He will not support any form of caps on carbon pollution unless the Democrats agree to green-light the expansion of nuclear energy, offshore drilling, clean coal and natural gas as energy alternatives to create new jobs and to end American dependence on foreign oil.
And that’s a point REP is trying to clarify to misled South Carolinians.
“Sen. Graham is being attacked by self-serving oil industry groups for his work to advance a sensible energy policy for our country,” REP Vice President for Government and Political Affairs David Jenkins said. “We are standing up for Sen. Graham, a true conservative who is taking responsibility for protecting our country from the energy security and climate risks that we face.”…”
