One Republican NOT running from Cunningham
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
Committee to Elect Kathy King for Judge announces controversial celebrity endorsement
HAMILTON COUNTY, OHIO – In a heated battle for the only contested Hamilton County Judge race, controversial conservative talk show host Bill Cunningham has endorsed Magistrate Kathy King over Pat DeWine in the race for Judge in the Court of Common Pleas.
"I've known Kathy King for more than 30 years. She's a life-long Republican. She's been a magistrate in the Court of Common Pleas Domestic Relations Division for 25 of those years. Kathy King is the only candidate who has spent her entire career preparing to become a judge. As an attorney, I know that in the courtroom, experience and preparation matter most when voting for judge. There's no comparison to Kathy King in this race, so I support Kathy King. It's a no-brainer!" said Cunningham.
Bill Cunningham has been a lightning rod of controversy surrounding his emotional warm-up at a recent Republican rally to support Presidential hopeful, John McCain earlier this week.
Asked how the controversy over Cunningham's remarks would affect her campaign for judge, Magistrate Kathy King replied, "Bill and I have been friends for over three decades. All during that time, I've never known him to back down from speaking his mind, no one can prevent him from speaking the truth, and Bill doesn't cave in to political pressure. He speaks from his heart. Bill Cunningham is truly a great American with a microphone and he isn't afraid to use it. I'm truly honored that Bill Cunningham endorsed me in this very important race for Judge in the Court of Common Pleas."
Bill Cunningham's recorded telephone message endorsing Kathy King for Judge is being placed to thousands of Republican households this weekend. To hear the recording in full, go to www.kathyking2008.org and click on the Bill Cunningham link. The entire script follows:
"Bill Cunningham here: I am a Great American, and I'm asking you as a fellow American, and resident of Hamilton County, to vote for Kathy King, a lifelong Republican, for judge.
Kathy King is running for judge against Pat DeWine because, like me, she knows that in the courtroom, experience matters. Kathy King has been a magistrate in the Common Pleas Court for 25 years. Kathy King has tried dozens of jury trials and hundreds of bench trials.
I've personally known Kathy King for 30 years and I'm asking you to join me and vote "Kathy King" for judge on Tuesday.
