General John Douglass Responds to TV Ads

Bedford, VA - Candidate for Virginia's 5th Congressional District, John Douglass, attended Centerfest on Saturday.

We asked Douglass about the recent TV ads put out by Congressman Hurt's campaign.

They accuse Douglass of trying to lobby to "sell sensitive satellite technology to China."

Douglass responded by saying, "It's pretty disgraceful for a guy that never served one minute in uniform of his country to attack my patriotism, and he should be hanging his head in shame for the lies he's telling in those ads.

We contacted the Hurt campaign for a response and they gave us a statement saying "Washington DC insider and lobbyist John Douglass is certainly entitled to his own opinion, but the facts speak for themselves."
