“My opponent, last election cycle, 96% of his money came from special interest and large money donors. I will take no money from any special interest group whatsoever.”
Sharp said he believes in term limits and even signed a pledge for a term limit at a candidacy announcement event at Mahr Park Arboretum on Tuesday evening.
“I will support and co-sponsor any bill that is put forward for term limits,” he said. “I have been a proponent of term limits even when I was the chairman of the Republican party.”
Sharp also talked about the ineffectiveness of Kentucky lawmakers in Washington.
“When you look at our congressmen in Kentucky — Vanderbilt University and Virginia University every year they do a study on effective legislators, and in the first district our current representative ranks in the bottom one-third of Republicans,” he said. “We have two Republican congressmen in Kentucky that rank lower than him. We are not getting the representation in Washington that we deserve.”
