In normal election years, July 5 is considered a proper starting date for the general election. That may not be the case in Georgia’s race for the U.S. Senate. The Georgia GOP on Thursday moved this attack on Jim Barksdale, the Democratic rival to Republican incumbent Johnny Isakson:

While unassuming and soft-spoken, liberal moneyman Jim Barksdale holds dangerous policy views that -if implemented – would endanger our homeland while sending the Middle East into a tailspin.

Following the Orlando terrorist attack, Georgia voters got a taste of Barksdale’s radical ideology when he told a room of Hall County Democrats that America should “step back from the violence” because “we are the ones that are in the wrong.”

Barksdale’s pacifist tone isn’t surprising.  He actually left the Republican Party when the United States invaded Iraq but made millions by making the “obvious” decision to invest his client’s money in companies that earned defense contracts in the occupied country.
