Duncan Denounces Deficit

  With the General Election coming up in just one month, WLBG Radio has begun its schedule of interviewing candidates seeking election in the November General Election.

  Third District United States Congressman Jeff Duncan appeared yesterday on Good Morning Up-Country. The primary emphasis of his conversation was to stress the need to address the deficit spending by the United Statesgovernment.Duncantold of how even fellow Republicans had disparaged him for his efforts to block an extension of the debt limit until a more permanent solution to the unbalanced budget was developed.

  Duncan is the first US Congressman from Laurens County in over 100 years. His opponent in this first attempt at re-election is Democrat Bryan Ryan Doyle. Mr. Doyle had not responded to invitations to appear on WLBG, as of yesterday.
