E. W. Jackson, U.S. Senate Candidate
E. W. Jackson will attend a Roanoke County Republican meeting Tuesday 7:00 p.m. at the Roanoke County Administration Building.
Chesapeake, VA – > Last night during a campaign speech in Chesapeake, U.S. Senate Candidate E.W. Jackson launched the second phase of his campaign to an enthusiastic hometown crowd.
After declaring, “I am not an African-American. I am an American,” Jackson went on to harshly criticize the Obama Administration’s fiscal and economic policies and addressed the notion that complaints towards the White House were racially motivated. Jackson proclaimed, “As an American that happens to be black, criticism of Barak Obama is not about the color of his skin. It is about his policies. I don’t care if a president is black or white. I just want our president to be red, white and blue.”
Jackson was clearly energized as he introduced the new members of his campaign staff. Among the new staff members, was Jackson’s campaign manager, Greg Aldridge, a Virginia native and resident of Floyd County. Aldridge is an entrepreneur who founded Appalachian Media Group Ltd. before focusing his efforts on politics. Joining Aldridge on the campaign team is Jackson’s communications director Chip Tarbutton a tea party activist who has taken a leave of absence from his position as Roanoke Tea Party President.
Jackson went on to say, “Our country is headed off a cliff and we don’t need a Washington insider. We need a champion. One who will go to Washington and fight.” One fight Jackson is prepared to have concerns the federal budget. Jackson reminded the crowd that President Obama has stated that the budget needed to be trimmed delicately “with a scalpel”. Jackson received resounding cheers when he told the audience, “We can’t fix the budget with a scalpel. We need an ax.”
To underscore that point he held up a full size ax painted like the American flag. The “Jackson Ax” received cheers from the audience and a string of encouraging comments during face to face discussions after the meeting.
The “Jackson Ax” will be a permanent fixture as Jackson campaigns around the state.
