Sen. Lee Hawkins Condemns Special Interest Group Working with Graves

Outside groups attempting to falsely influence Georgia voters

A Washington special interest has launched an expensive, false television advertising campaign to assist their endorsed candidate, Tom Graves, and damage State Sen. Lee Hawkins' bid for Congress.

The television ad from "Club for Growth" claims Hawkins opposes the repeal of President Obama's recently passed national healthcare reform package.

The false advertising fails to mention that Hawkins is campaigning daily on repealing Obamacare, as well as Hawkins airing TV commercials calling for repealing Obamacare.

Dr. Hawkins is a dentist and former President of the Georgia Dental Association. As a professional health care practitioner, Dr. Hawkins has led effort in Georgia to stop Obamacare.

Graves has no experience in health care whatsoever.

"There is something much more sinister here," said Dr. Hawkins. "This is a Washington special group which supports opening our borders for illegal immigration. Graves Washington buddies oppose immigration reform and want you to elect a weak career politician they can control like Tom Graves."

"Georgia voters won't be fooled by D.C. special interest groups trying to force their candidate onto north Georgia voters."

"It's just a falsehood from a big D.C. establishment special interest group," said Dr. Hawkins."
