Ken said, “I’m still on the sidelines regarding who to support in this election cycle. If I had my dream, we’d have a great Republican candidate in the primary who was younger, of a different generation, with a different tone for America. And we’d have a younger person on the Democratic side in the primary who would have his message for our country, with two younger, fresher candidates. We’d have a debate around ideas, principles, and policies to make this a great nation.” Also he said “We’re not having that dialogue right now.”

I care deeply about individual rights and freedom, economic policies encouraging prosperity and upward mobility, all children having access to a high-quality education, ensuring our communities are safe, and a strong national defense.”
