DeLay Accuses McDaniel of Poor Voting Record; McDaniel Dismissive

SEPTEMBER 19, 2006 - Posted at 7:59 a.m. CDT

 

LITTLE ROCK, AR - Gunner DeLay, the Republican nominee for Attorney General of Arkansas, says his Democratic opponent Dustin McDaniel has a poor voting record in the Legislature and tends to avoid the tough issues.

But McDaniel's campaign manager Melissa Moody dismissed the criticism as "a frivolous attack."  Moody says McDaniel has broad support while DeLay has risked criminal prosecution for not paying his taxes and has been sued for not paying his law office bills.

DeLay called Moody's response "slander."

DeLay says that McDaniel, who is in his first term as a state representative from Jonesboro, missed nearly 20 percent of the votes in the Legislature.  DeLay says that of nearly 2,600 hundred votes cast in the 2005 regular session, McDaniel either did not vote or voted present 452 times.
