South Carolina Rep. Joe Wilson (R), who has been one of President Barack Obama’s fiercest critics, endorsed Georgia Republican Lee Anderson on Tuesday.
Wilson’s district neighbors Georgia’s 12th congressional district. Wilson is best known for yelling “You Lie” during President Barack Obama’s speech to a joint session of Congress when Obama claimed illegal immigrants would not benefit from Obamacare. Wilson focused on attacking Barrow for supporting Obama’s defense cuts.
Wilson said supporting Obama — like Barrow does — was supporting sequestration.
“He (Barrow) supports Obama, the leader in the White House, the man who wants to cut our defense department,” Wilson said. “That’s the difference right there.”
