I’ve gotten several questionnaires from the press. I just returned one to the Forest Lake Press which will publish it in mid-October.
Here’s my response to their final question:
- What would you like to tell voters about your qualification as their representative in Washington , D.C. ? Why are you the best candidate for the job?
As a lifelong historian of American politicsÂ I am fed up with its current state of polarization and paralysis. Since Jim Oberstar has been calling Rod Grams aÂ liar and since Rod Grams has been calling Jim Oberstar an â€œliberal elitist,â€Â I believe that I’m the best choice. I am running as in independent candidate on the “Unity Party” label. I will caucus with the Democrats but work with the many new congressman this election will usher in to putÂ partisan polarization behind us.
