It's been six whole days since Nancy Pelosi's partisan wish list disguised as a phase four COVID-19 relief bill passed the House
, and Cal Cunningham has yet to oppose it. Cunningham's complicit silence on this legislation makes perfect sense given the extreme liberal record he's built up over the course of his campaign. In fact, today marks the three-month anniversary of the release of Cal Cunningham's notorious ad
in which he admitted that he will be a rubber stamp for radical policies like the Green New Deal and Medicare for All.
"It's no surprise that Cal Cunningham is refusing to speak out against Nancy Pelosi's phase four COVID-19 relief bill given the ad he ran in the primary pushing back against attacks from the left that he isn't a big enough socialist,"
said NCGOP spokesman Tim Wigginton. "Cal Cunningham has been in lock-step with the national Democrats funding his campaign since he entered the race, and his inability to take a stand against legislation as harmful as Pelosi's latest bill shows he cannot be trusted to put North Carolinians first."
Cunningham has consistently been a vocal supporter
of past relief packages put forward by Pelosi, but has not yet taken a position on her latest $3 trillion proposal, which provides taxpayer funding
to illegal immigrants, tax giveaways
for the rich in blue states at the expense of North Carolinians, and mentions cannabis
more than it does jobs.
- Back when he was fighting for his political life in an intense primary with Erica Smith, Cal Cunningham faced attacks ads claiming that he couldn't be trusted to vote for socialist policies like Medicare for All and the Green New Deal.
- In response, Cunningham released an ad on February 20th , admitting that he would, in fact, vote for the Green New Deal and Medicare for All.
- Cunningham, in the direct to camera spot, said that the ads being run about him claiming that he won't vote for the Green New Deal or Medicare for All were "just not true."
