AG Candidate Smith Becomes Online Sensation

“Uncommon Courage” web video approaching 80,000 views on YouTube

Preston Smith, Republican candidate for Georgia attorney general, is quickly becoming an internet star with his web video “Uncommon Courage.” Released less than three weeks ago, the video is on the verge of receiving 80,000 views on YouTube, an astounding number for a political video in this year’s Georgia primary season.

“Voters are understandably cynical and desperately searching for public servants who actually have a record in office of doing what they said they would do. Words alone are cheap these days, while real action is priceless,” said Smith. “Undoubtedly, conservative Republicans are responding to the video because of my anti-tax increase stance, but I think the speech is appealing to a broader group because I sacrificed political power in order to remain true to my principles and constituents.”

The video was released on July 8 and includes clips of Smith’s 2010 speech from the Senate floor after he was stripped of his committee chairmanship for refusing to vote for a tax increase. The video also displays newspaper headlines from all across Georgia praising his courage and unwillingness to compromise his principles.

“I represent between 150-200,000 constituents, and I am the only voice that they have in this Senate. Neither my principle nor their voice is on the auction block,” Smith said during his now-famous speech.

As Georgia’s Attorney General, Smith will continue to be a taxpayer champion by implementing zero base budgeting in the AG’s Office, challenging Obamacare on his first day in office, strictly enforcing our immigration laws, and stopping waste, fraud, and abuse.
