Barr Predicts McCain Will Lose in Georgia

For Immediate Release Friday, October 24, 2008

“Senator John McCain will not win Georgia,” predicts Bob Barr, the Libertarian Party nominee for president. “His shrinking poll numbers are an indication that McCain is losing touch with the American public as we get closer to November 4th.”

“Sen. McCain never connected with the fiscal conservatives in Georgia,” says Barr. “His lack of a principled stand on issues such as reducing the size of government and cutting spending bothers Georgia voters. Sen. McCain can’t say with a straight face he will not raise taxes or increase government spending, given his support for such extremely expensive federal government programs like the recent massive bailouts for Wall Street. Clearly, McCain has failed to attract the hearts and support of Georgia voters.”

“Sen. Obama will not so much win Georgia, as Sen. McCain will lose the state,” Barr adds.

“Georgia voters looking for a candidate who truly believes in limiting the size of government and reducing taxes should vote for Bob Barr and the Libertarian Party,” says Barr.

Libertarian Party presidential candidate Bob Barr represented the 7th District of Georgia in the U. S. House of Representatives from 1995 to 2003. Barr’s name will appear before 95 percent of Americans when the vote on Election Day – more than any other third-party or independent candidate.

The Libertarian Party is America’s third largest political party, founded in 1971 as an alternative to the two main political parties. You can find more information on the Libertarian Party by visiting . The Libertarian Party proudly stands for smaller government, lower taxes and more freedom.
