Virginia Fifth District Race - #2049 - Robert Hurt Calls on Congressman Perriello to Denounce Obama Support for Mosque

Chatham, VA - President Obama has endorsed a plan to build a mosque at the site of the September 11th terrorist attack.  Nearly 70% of Americans oppose this effort (see here).  Republican Congressional Candidate in Virginia's Fifth District, Robert Hurt, released the following statement:

"Our president's decision to endorse the building of a mosque so close to the site of a national tragedy that millions of Americans will remember for their entire lives is deeply troubling.  This is another example that the White House and folks in Washington are totally out-of-touch with the people of America.  Congressman Perriello needs to stand up to our president and tell him that he should be focused on creating jobs and cutting the out-of-control spending in Washington instead of gratuitously offending millions of Americans with his insensitive comments.

So I ask, where does our Congressman stand on this important issue?"
