Tennessee 5th Congressional District candidate and Maury County Mayor Andy Ogles called on Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA-12) and congressional Democrats to “end the ridiculous January 6 partisan political charade.”
In a statement Thursday, the Republican said that the Democrat-controlled House needs to immediately end the January 6 show trial and refocus on the issues actually impacting American families.
“The ridiculous partisan witch-hunt that the House is engaged in as they relentlessly attack former President Trump needs to end now,” Ogles said. “As Democrats devote their attention to smearing President Trump, and with little or any success, American families are suffering from the destructive policy agenda of President Biden and the out-of-touch party that pulls his puppet strings.”
Ogles then pointed out what he thinks the U.S. House of Representatives should focus on.
“The House should be focusing their investigative and oversight duties on the inept military withdrawal from Afghanistan that cost the lives of U.S. military personnel and innocent Afghanis, the wasteful billions being sent to Ukraine with virtually no accountability, historic levels of inflation that the Biden administration denied, then portrayed as temporary and now declares out of the control of President Biden, rising violent crime in our cities, the absence of baby formula and now tampons in our stores, and the chaos on our southern border which the administration ignores,” Ogles continued.
“There is a long list of issues that deserve the laser-focused attention of our Congress, but all are taking a back seat to the partisan political agenda of a Democratic Party desperately trying to distract from their failures as the November midterms draw closer,” he said.
Ogles further promised that as a member of a Republican majority House after the midterm elections he will devote time and resources to the important issues that have real and serious impact on our families and communities.
“As a small-town Mayor, I can assure you that voters are much more concerned about gas prices, inflation, and the flood of illegal aliens at our southern border instead of Democrats re-litigating the January 6 breach of the Capitol for partisan political purposes,” Ogles said.
The 5th Congressional District, which changed after redistricting, now consists of parts of Davidson, Williamson, and Wilson counties, and all of Maury, Marshall, and Lewis counties.
