VOTEVETS CONDEMNS NRCC FOR VILE AND DISGUSTING HOMOPHOBIC ATTACKS ON TX-23 CANDIDATE, GINA ORTIZ JONES

WASHINGTON D.C.—Will Goodwin, Army Veteran and Director of Government Relations for VoteVets, released the following statement on the NRCC’s desperate and homophobic attacks on Gina Ortiz Jones: 

“The NRCC attacking any candidate for their sexual orientation is reprehensible, vile and gutter-politics at its worst. That in the year 2020, they think it’s a winning strategy against a veteran who has served her country honorably, tells you everything you need to know about Donald Trump’s Republican Party. Gina Ortiz Jones volunteered to serve her country selflessly and courageously during Don’t Ask Don’t Tell.  These desperate and homophobic attacks on her are yet another example of how—just like their standard bearer Donald Trump—today’s Republican Party has nothing to offer the American people beyond faux-patriotism and culture-war grievances.”
