Setting the Record Straight

There has been some misinformation in the race for the Ohio 2nd Congressional District. This blog is a great place to set the record straight.

In that race, Jean Schmidt is facing ultra-liberal Victoria Wulsin. She is the Democrat endorsed and nominated candidate. But, Jean also faces a second Democrat, David Krikorian, in her race for re-election.

Unfortunately, Mr. Krikorian has been selling himself as a "conservative" and as an alternative voice for conservatives in that race. This is false. A careful review of public information about Mr. Krikorian shows us that he has voted as a Democrat in the very recent past. His voter history reflects that he voted in the Democratic primary in 2004 and 2006. Also, he has contributed money to Democrat Wulsin in 2007.

Mr. Krikorian's attempt to establish himself as an "independent conservative" are an unfortunate appeal to our Republican voters in that district from a man who has nothing to show he has ever been a Republican or even a conservative. He may be a perfectly decent man, but there is nothing to show him as a Republican or as a conservative.

I believe it is my responsibility to preserve the good name of our Party and to support those that carry our banner. This man does not. It is important to set the record straight.
