Guest joined Y’all Politics on Friday morning to rebut the main points his challenger is making against him in the race, directly calling them lies and warning the voters in the 3rd District to not be fooled by the Maryland native.

The incumbent Congressman also commented on the reports of Cassidy scrubbing his campaign website after Tuesday’s Primary when conservatives began delving more into who the newcomer was and where he stood on policy issues.
