A veteran’s PAC is making a big media buy in Missouri in support of Jason Kander’s campaign for the U.S. Senate.
John Hussey, Iraq Veteran, St. Louis, MO.: Jason Kander could have gone anywhere after law school. [Jason Kander] He chose here, Afghanistan.
[Roy Blunt Attack Ads] Now, Roy Blunt is trying to smear his record. Well, Senator, let’s talk about your record. You lied to Missouri.
[Fox News: Questions Raised Over Blunt’s Vietnam-era Deferments 2/11/16] You didn’t level with us about your draft history.
You even voted against increasing veterans benefits for guys like me. [Voted Against Increasing Veterans Benefits Vote 46 2/27/14]
Senator Blunt, remember this. Jason Kander had our backs over there. Now we’ve got his.
