Statement from Ron Barber on the Results of the CD-8 Special Election Primary

Statement

Date:
Location: Tucson, AZ

Democratic congressional candidate Ron Barber issued the following statement this evening:

"I am running for Congress to help rebuild Southern Arizona's middle class. I am committed to solutions that create jobs, and balance the budget the right way--not on the backs of our seniors. Creating good middle-class jobs, looking out for our military and their families and veterans, protecting Social Security and Medicare, and securing our border--those will be my main priorities in Congress.

"Unfortunately, Jesse Kelly's agenda would put the rich first and leave middle class families last. He supports a radical tax plan that would increase taxes by 23% for middle class families while lowering them for millionaires and billionaires. When it comes to benefits that seniors have spent a lifetime to earn, Jesse Kelly said that Medicare should be eliminated -- seniors need to "get off the public dole'--and Social Security should be "phased out.' Jesse Kelly would even abolish the minimum wage. Kelly's priorities are the wrong priorities for Southern Arizona's middle class families and seniors."
