James Marlow: "I'm proud to be a Democrat."
Unlike my opponent, Jim Whitehead, I believe that the war in Iraq is a critical issue for the people of the 10th District, and my top priority as your congressman will be working to bring our involvement there to an honorable end as quickly as possible.
Sadly, Whitehead seems to be a part of the angry, negative partisan politics that has failed this state and this nation over the last several years, both at the state Capitol in Atlanta and the U.S. Capitol in Washington. With so many critical issues facing us today, the voters of the 10th District deserve a reasoned debate on the issues, not petty name-calling, false charges and angry diatribes. I'm proud to be a Democrat, but I am a common-sense one who will always put the interests of the people in the 10th District and the nation ahead of partisanship.
