(Atlanta, GA) GAGOP Chairman John Padgett echoed the opposition of Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus and South Carolina Republican Party Chairman Matt Moore to CNN and NBC producing documentaries honoring former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. Like Chairman Moore, Padgett will vote to bar Republicans from participating in any primary or Presidential debate with CNN or NBC at the Republican National Committee meeting later this month.
“The Georgia Republican Party joins with our conservative neighbors in South Carolina to support Chairman Priebus and his efforts to stop CNN and NBC from serving as the Clinton Campaign’s probono media team,” said Chairman John Padgett. “The partisanship and blatantly biased slant from these ‘trusted’ news outlets is unacceptable and will not be tolerated here in Georgia.
“Rest assured that if CNN and NBC continue in their overt efforts to prop up Hillary Clinton, they can add Georgia to the list of states where their Presidential debates are not welcomed.”
