What office are you running for?
With which party are you running for office?
3 November 2020
Why are you running for office?
The Senate Majority Leader has failed to execute his sworn duties to the Constitution and thrust the nation into chaos and discord for his own financial and political gain. Defeating him will remove the single point of failure in advancing economic and social justice.
What is the biggest issue facing your community and how do you propose helping?
Kentucky has been and continues to be impoverished by an extractive economic system that supports senators like Mitch McConnell who takes money from BigPharma, BigAgra, BigEnergy and other corporations and special interests to forestall any laws that would protect his constituents from exploitation. Removing McConnell is the first step, then I will ensure that those who have benefited from the system the most pay for the healthcare of their workers, cleaning up and improving the environment and rebuilding and improving our nation’s infrastructure.
How do we fix the partisan divide in our country and start working together again?
By putting country before party and publicly naming and shaming all politicians who attempt to play one group off against another for their own gain.

Smedley D. Butler, among many
