Plumb Response to Reed Campaign attack
"For over twenty years I have had the privilege to serve shoulder to shoulder with the best and bravest men and women in the world, and I won’t ever run away from that. That’s not politics, that’s integrity. Our campaign is about finding real ways to help hard working families by protecting jobs and our country, not political grandstanding."
"I've served under Republican and Democratic Presidents -- under the water, in the Middle East, in the Pentagon and on the National Security Council. Politics should stop when it comes to our National Security, but Congressman Reed doesn’t seem to understand that,” added Plumb.
“Congressman Tom Reed is everything that’s wrong with Washington. He’s been in Congress for 6 years and all he has to show for it is millions in campaign contributions from special interests while thousands of workers here in New York have lost their jobs as manufacturing plants in our region have been forced to close down in the face of unfair foreign companies that undercut American businesses.”
“If Tom Reed wants to step out from behind his campaign spokesperson and have a real debate on who can better protect jobs, support New York families, and protect our country - I would welcome it. But, for now, he seems to prefer the Washington way of doing things and leaving the people of New York to pay the price.”
