Press Release - Why I Intend to Stay in the GOP Presidential Race (Fox News)
It seems like the only thing that's guaranteed in this year's election is the litany of punditry after every primary. This undiscussed industry has helped make politics more blood sport than democratic exercise.
It seems to get nastier at every turn, as campaign flacks dressed up as journalists line up to savage candidates whose campaigns they see as a threat to their preferred politician. Some have even gone so far as to question my faith, integrity or party loyalty because I won't kowtow to their demands to step away from the primary process.
Is this what has become of politics in the world's greatest democracy?
