Never been a Democrat...
By Rick Krueger
September 24, 2006
Since writing my previous letter, I received a call Sunday Morning
from Republican Primary winner Kyle Johannsen. He explained
to me adamantly that he has NOT ever been a Democrat so it would
be impossible for him to change parties.
If someone has the nerve to call me at 7:30 on a Sunday morning
on my day off, I will listen. I told him that my assumption
was based upon a conversation that he and I had had years ago.
After he explained himself at length, I am now taking him at
his word on this subject and I am retracting my statement concerning
his "former" party affiliation. Sorry, Kyle. You
did have the nerve to call and set the record straight, even
when I can not vote for you.
With that said, I still do not believe that Republicans OR Democrats
should attack each other in public without first having a private
dialogue to clear the air. That is how the "other guys"
win the election by saying "See, they can not even agree
with each other".
Good luck and take my advice on this subject: Do NOT smoke "pot"
while you are campaigning and do not "pistol whip"

I thought that Jim Elkins had
done a decent job from what I had heard.
