Methodology

GA-12 CONGRESSIONAL DISTRICT POLL – SEPTEMBER 2009

This survey was conducted by Research 2000 of Rockville, Maryland. A total of 600 likely voters in the Twelfth Congressional District were interviewed by telephone September 15 through September 17, 2009. Those interviewed were selected by the random variation of the last four digits of telephone numbers. A cross-section of exchanges was utilized in order to ensure an accurate reflection of the district.

The margin for error, according to standards customarily used by statisticians, is no more than plus or minus 4% percentage points. This means that there is a 95 percent probability that the “true” figure would fall within that range if the entire population were sampled. The margin for error is higher for any subgroup, such as for gender or party affiliation.

COL. Wayne Mosley, M.D.

Wayne Mosely, GOP candidate in the 12th Congressional District has dropped out of the race. He sent out the following statement.

Dear Friends,

There are times when you must choose between what you want to do and what you need to do. Right now is one of those times for me.

A few months ago, Allen Kent and Howard Holman, (the CEO and VP for Business Development respectively, for the local hospital in Vidalia), accused me of a breach of contract. This was an action filed this year for an allegation dating back to 2003. Specifically it involves my deployment to Afghanistan in support of Operation Enduring Freedom in March of 2003. As shocking as it may sound, I’m accused of breaking my contract because I obeyed an order to serve our country in Afghanistan and Iraq.

I have tried to resolve this matter for most of the last three months, but it appears as though it will drag on for quite some time longer. I am therefore obligated to re-evaluate my viability as a candidate for Georgia’s 12th Congressional District. Please keep in mind that I do not consider this a mere PR problem. There are three areas that I must consider going forward. In ascending order of importance they are:

Number 3: Costs. Litigation is expensive –even more expensive than campaigning. I have spent thousands upon thousands of dollars defending myself already and see no real end in sight. The only possible sources of funds for my defense is either money I had set aside for the campaign, or taking time off the campaign to increase my earnings. Both of these options hurt the campaign, seriously and directly.

Number 2: Time. Without a doubt this ends up being a campaign’s most precious resource. I have allowed this litigation to take my time away from campaigning. But I did so only with the intent to bring it to a quick conclusion. What will happen in the future is the relevant question. For that answer, I direct you to the next area.

Number 1: The most important issue here is that all Veterans should be protected from false charges for obeying the legal orders of our Commander-in-Chief. Allowing Reservists and Guardsmen to be harassed and damaged financially for serving our country, will decimate the ranks of our Reserve and National Guard forces. That action my friends puts our country and our safety at risk. I am unwilling to let this occur.

My mother always told me to keep my heart and my mind open and God will use me as a positive force. I believe I can be a positive force, even at the cost of my candidacy. Is it worth it? I have no doubt that it is!

Therefore with this message, I will discontinue my candidacy for Georgia’s 12th congressional district. For those of you that have already donated financially, there is only one way I know to handle such. It is your money, so a full refund is forthcoming. For those of you that have donated your time and energy, such effort is priceless and could never be fully repaid. But know that you have my unyielding respect and loyalty. And when the time comes that I can be of service to you, I hope you will call on me.

With Respect,

Wayne
