My response to your endorsement of my opponent in the Democratic primary for the 5th District of Kentucky is the following:
I am the best candidate in the Democratic primary for the 5th District congressman for the Commonwealth of Kentucky, because I am the strongest advocate for ordinary people, working people, the working poor, the disabled, the elderly retired, women and religious and racial minorities.
As a Democrat, I support those programs that most benefit ordinary people.
As a Democrat, I oppose those programs that benefit only rich investors, such as our continued wars in the Middle East. As a Kentuckian, I support traditional Kentucky values, including right to life, family values, and the Second Amendment right to own firearms.
I share the founding fathers' views on the separation of church and state. I share the founding fathers' views that powerful large industrialized nations should not be using that military might to bully small and backward nations.
My background as a naval officer, a lawyer and a student of industrial management also make me the most qualified candidate, because it helps me to make good decisions.
