With election day in Texas about 3 weeks away, the state’s most contentious congressional contest between Congressman Pete Sessions (R) and retired executive Renee Swann (R), continues to sizzle under Texas’ political sunrays.
The gloves have come off and both candidates are throwing haymakers at each other in hopes to sway the undecided Republican voters in and around the Waco area.
Swann has put up a website drawing attention to Sessions’ alleged missteps and voting record, referring to him as a “career politician” and a friend of Communist China.
Swann called the accusations “FAKE NEWS.”
The ad states that when Swann was asked whether “she would impose more gun control on law abiding citizens,” Swann refused to answer the question, saying that she was “not prepared to answer that question.”
But the most damning allegation Sessions’ ad makes is that the Waco-Tribune stated that Swann “demonstrated a lack of knowledge, depth, and context on even basic issues” when they interviewed her earlier in the year.
We pulled up the Waco-Tribune interview of Swann to see what Sessions was talking about. These are the two instances we believe support the newspaper’s claim that Swann “demonstrated a lack of knowledge, depth, and context on even basic issues.”
