Denneny Decries 11th District Squabbling

Bill Turque

While Leslie L. Byrne and Gerald E. Connolly trade charge and countercharge about their records and tactics, 11th District Democratic Congressional candidate Doug Denneny is trying to gain some ground on the high road.

"Just like the career politicians they are, Doug's opponents are quibbling over campaign tactics instead of focusing on the real problems facing voters in the 11th district," his communications director, Kevin Franck, said in a statement today. "The fact that our opponents have gone negative so early in this race is troubling."

Franck said such intramural food fights are especially unseemly on the 5th anniverary of the Iraq War. Denneny is a former Navy pilot and Iraq war veteran.

"Brave men and women of our armed forces are still in harms way," he said. "Getting our country back on track will require real leadership for a change, not inside-baseball political fights. Let's keep our eye on the ball."
