According to at least one source some “well placed” Democrats in New Hampshire and Washington, DC have had positive reactions to Sullivan’s intentions.Peter is a graduate of the University of Arkansas Law school and had one of my cousins as a professor there. Rest assured, as soon as I get a hold on a logo, I will place a link on my blog to the campaign site. He also has his own blog. If I were in New Hampshire, he'd have my vote.
In an interview Sullivan said that he has decided to enter the race because of what he thinks are broken promises on the part of Jeb Bradley. "When Jeb Bradley went to Washington, he promised that he would be an independent-minded congressman, someone who would not allow himself to be held hostage by partisan interests," Sullivan said, "he has not lived up to this billing. Time after time, Jeb has succumbed to pressure from the White House and from Tom DeLay and placed the interests of the Republican Party above the interests of New Hampshire."
According to Sullivan, "Jeb has waffled on protecting Social Security; he has waffled on supporting the intelligence reform proposals of the 9/11 Commission; and he has failed to support tough ethics rules for members of Congress. That's not leadership."
Sullivan said that over the course of the campaign he will offer proposals on national security and foreign policy that that are rooted in the "tough-yet-smart tradition of Democrats like Truman, Kennedy and Clinton; and I will offer a clear alternative agenda of reform, one that stands in sharp contrast to Jeb's complicity with the likes of Tom DeLay."
While Sullivan does not yet have a primary challenge he anticipates that he will not be alone.
He is not related to Kathy Sullivan at all.
