Cites Flake’s commitment to national security and liberty.
PHOENIX – Following the launch yesterday of Democrat Richard Carmona’s negative attack ad against Jeff Flake, attempting to paint him as anti-veteran, another highly respected Arizona veteran is speaking out.

Bill Montgomery is a West Point graduate and Gulf War veteran. He received a Bronze Star Medal for Meritorious Service for his contribution in the liberation of Kuwait, the defeat of Saddam Hussein and the safe return of the 15 soldiers he led.
Richard Carmona’s rollout of his nasty attack ad didn’t turn out quite they way his campaign hoped. The Flake campaign quickly answered Carmona’s false, partisan accusation.

McCain levied harsh criticism against Richard Carmona’s decision to engage in partisan attacks and defended Jeff Flake’s commitment to those who serve our nation.
