Taylor Bennett goes on the offensive in his swing Brookhaven district

Democratic state Rep. Taylor Bennett’s victory in a special election last year in a swing Brookhaven district immediately put a target on his back.

He’s staking his claim to the seat with a TV ad reminding voters of his opposition to the “religious liberty” measure that Gov. Nathan Deal vetoed and his support for a law that requires law enforcement to test rape kits that never went analyzed by authorities for DNA matches.

Bennett, a former Georgia Tech quarterback who faces Republican attorney Meagan Hanson in November, released this ad on Tuesday.

Here’s a snippet:

“We’ve done a lot of good, and it hasn’t had anything to do with party politics, which is the way it should be. We’re making our community safer by testing sexual assault DNA kits, by keeping guns out of our college classrooms, and we successfully said no to discrimination, because that’s not who we are as a diverse community – and because it’s bad for business.”

His slogan – “Better Together” – is suspiciously like a certain presidential candidate’s mantra.

Georgia tax payers, that work everyday, are not gonna sit back and throw that money at Hillary, just so she can sit back and laugh about it and say she's beat the system. People are fed up, have been for years, enough is enough. The citizens in this country are gonna make a change one way or another. To many people talking, mean well, gonna keep standing for Trump, unite together, and do what it takes. Gonna get this nation pulled back out of the corrupted commune..!! I hear it everyday .
