Tom Knox, a former Forsyth County Republican chairman and one-time member of the state House of Representatives representing that county, has taken a hard shot at GOP lieutenant gubernatorial candidate Geoff Duncan.
“Less than a year into his term, Geoff Duncan has resigned from the Georgia House … (and) his campaign for lieutenant governor is shaping up exactly like his campaigns for the House against me. He slings mud to cover up his own lack of ability, experience and accomplishments,” Knox said.
And Knox isn’t finished:
“Duncan quit the House having accomplished nothing of significance, just like he dropped out of Georgia Tech without earning a degree. He claims to have played Major League Baseball for the Florida Marlins, but check his record. He played for unknown minor league teams like the Kade County Cougars and Utica Blue Sox. He claims to be a serial entrepreneur. Nonetheless his business career has consisted of brief stints as a home builder and a salesman of promotional products. His current ‘job’ is running for office.”
Duncan calls himself the “true conservative” in the lieutenant governor’s primary and touts himself as a “serial” businessman. He is challenging front-runner Sen. David Shafer in the GOP lieutenant governor’s primary, and naturally slams back at old foe Knox by saying he’s the one who’s slinging mud.
