Today I announced my candidacy in the 2018 Republican Primary for U.S. Senate against the incumbent Deb Fischer because she is doing nothing to reduce our national debt which is badly out-of-control. My announcement speech was completely focused on the magnitude of our debt problem and what I think can and should be done about it.
Several members of the press who covered the event asked why I didn’t talk about other issues as well. My response to them:
- The debt issue is why I am in the race, what clearly distinguishes me from Fischer, and where I think she is vulnerable.
- Of course there are other important issues and I am willing to discuss them when asked.
- But to bring up other issues on my own diminishes the fundamental importance of the debt issue.
Conclusion. I am an unconventional candidate. I am running more against the debt than I am running against Deb Fischer. I have nothing against her. I merely want to get our debt problem fixed before it does great damage to our country and she is standing in the way.
