JOHNSON REACTS TO PALIN ENDORSEMENT
ELKTON — Kentucky GOP Senate Candidate Bill Johnson today issued the following statement about the Sarah Palin endorsement:
“According to reporting by several sources, Sarah Palin disagrees with Mr. Paul on some issues, Mr. Paul has never spoken to the Governor, and $2000 changed hands. Frankly, it appears like typical Washington behavior by two individuals claiming to be outside of politics as usual.
“While I respect Sarah Palin for her personal choices, I stand in disagreement with her and Mr. Paul’s public policy position of letting the states decide the issue of abortion. This is simply pro-choice for states. Instead, we need to protect our God-given unalienable right to life at all levels of government, including the federal level.
“It lacks honor to base an endorsement primarily on ‘shaking things up in Washington.’ We already have enough of the wrong kind of shake from the Washington Democrats and Libertarians. Instead, we need to elect principled leadership on the issues and chart a course back to the Ronald Reagan conservative platform.”
