I am writing to express my support for Ken Timmerman, who is running for Congress in the 8th District of Maryland. Although I am not a resident of his district, I believe he will be a credible addition to Congress.
I am impressed with his position regarding his support for smaller government, coupled with a robust national defense. The drift toward massive government growth has placed a needless burden on the country and has had an adverse effect on building successful business enterprises.
Ken has an unusual background as a war correspondent and investigative reporter. He has seen the effect of militant Islam firsthand and has been able to communicate his keen understanding of the dangers and risks in dealing with our enemies and the enemies of our friends.
Ken is a friend of Israel, and his opponent, Chris Van Hollen Jr., is not. He favors a robust U.S.-Israel relationship, maintaining our commitment to Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and continuing our belief that Hamas is a terrorist organization.
Ken’s platform recognizes the importance of protecting America and defending our Constitution. His position on the major issues facing us in government, jobs and the economy, freedom at home and defending our country from enemies from abroad, as well as domestic threats, are all embodied in his platform. He recognizes the importance of each of these issues and of dealing with them in a manner that, I believe, will correct some of the maladies of the last four years.
