Thank you, Lt. Leach

I read these comments earlier from Lt. Ronald Leach. He has posted them from Iraq where he his currently serving. As you may very well know, I have nothing but the greatest respect of those who have served or are serving our country right now. I'm the grandson of two veterans who have since passed away.

This is an excerpt of some of Lt. Leach's comments.
I, however, am not in concurrence with the opening comment’s assessment that CD 3 is "too far gone". It may take an unconventional campaign and a candidate with unique qualifications and qualities to attract the attention necessary.

I would suggest an atypical, non-political figure with experiences which resonate with the voters and the media. One that may garner national attention which could serve to quickly level the playing field, put Anne on the defensive early, and more importantly – bleed republican campaign coffers to ensure she has a chance to maintain what has been the most expensive congressional seat for the GOP in the region.

CD 3 needs someone not afraid that a potential loss would derail his or her well crafted political aspirations. Someone who is concerned more about the real impact of GOP continued dominance, rather than calculating the potential impact of this race on their own personal long term aspirations.
I hope that he is considering a run for Congress in the third congressional district of Kentucky because I think this year might very well be the year that military veterans get elected to Congress. We need a Democratic majority in the House and in the Senate.
