Cagle Promises to Preserve Stone Mountain

Lt. Gov. Casey Cagle, GOP candidate for Georgia Governor, issued the following response into the NAACP’s call to sandblast Stone Mountain’s carving:

I will work on behalf of all Georgians, but I will also stand up to the extremists who think we have to sandblast the past to move into the future. The Democratic nominee has called for removing the carving from Stone Mountain, and I’m the only Republican in this race who can stop her.”
