The National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC) is scrapping $1 million in scheduled TV advertisements for GOP congressional candidate J.R. Majewski after navy data reportedly revealed was by no means stationed in Afghanistan, regardless of claiming to have served there after the 9/11 terrorist assault.
Majewski, the candidate working in opposition to Democratic Rep. Marcy Kaptur in Ohio’s ninth Congressional District, has been known as an Afghanistan veteran for his Air Force service, however navy data obtained by the Associated Press reveal that he was by no means really stationed there. Following the studies, the NRCC canceled their plans to run advertisements for Majewski simply weeks earlier than the midterm elections.
According to an Associated Press report, navy data present that he was in Kadena Air Base in Japan and was later deployed to Qatar, the place he spent six months loading and unloading planes at an air base.
The NRCC’s transfer to divest from the promoting was first reported by Medium Buying, a media agency. The NRCC didn’t reply to Fox News Digital’s request for remark.

“I am proud to have served my country,” Majewski instructed the AP within the assertion concerning the navy paperwork. “My accomplishments and record are under attack, meanwhile, career politician Marcy Kaptur has a forty-year record of failure for my Toledo community, which is why I’m running for Congress.”

Majewski is competing in a good “toss-up” race in opposition to Kaptur, however the GOP nominee could also be in danger this fall if the NRCC pulls their help.
“The truth matters,” Marcy Kaptur mentioned in an announcement reacting to the studies. “As the only Ohioan on the House Veterans’ Affairs Committee, I know so many veterans — including those in my own family — who have served our grateful nation with honor. I have listened closely to their stories; their valor and unselfish heroism drives me to deliver for them each and every day.”
“The idea that anyone, much less a candidate for the United States Congress, would mislead voters about their service in combat is an affront to every man and woman who has proudly worn the uniform of our great country. J.R. Majewski owes each of these heroes a full explanation about his deception,” she mentioned.
