    Overalls In The Senate?

     
    This I-Reporter Cecil Pearson Jr. has made it official. I am campaigning to become a United States Senator from the Commonwealth Of Kentucky. This can be verified on the Federal Election Commission Website.

    I have talked to hundred of people across Kentucky and every single person I have spoken with has agreed with wht I have to say and here is my message;

    If you go into any store around Kentucky, hardware stores, parts stores, grocery stores, feed stores, even major chain stores, you will find a lot more people wearing overalls than you will people wearing suits. Why then would you want a person wearing a suit who knows nothing about an agricultural state telling you how to run your farms and small businesses, and people my definition of small business is a lot different than Rand Paul's. Wouldn't you rather have a person in Washington who will actually vote the way the people of Kentucky want?

    Do I wear overalls? Yes. Do I campaign in overalls? Yes. Will I wear overalls if I am elected? Yes. Why some people might ask? The answer is simple. It is time a common man represent the Commonwealth of Kentucky. It is time someone listen to the people they are representing in Washington, instead of listening to lobbyist, and special interest groups.

    If elected I will return the vote of the Senate to the people of Kentucky and vote the way the good hard working people of Kentucky tell me to vote, after all, I would just be their employee, subject to their vote to keep my job.

    I have never held public office, and I make that no secret. According to most of the people I have talked to in Kentucky it appeals to them. I even had one man in Edmonton Kentucky tell me, "You haven't learned how to steal yet." to which I replied, nope and I don't plan on taking that class once you elect me and send me to Washington.
