Running in a conservative district, Marksberry embraces Democratic agenda
10/22/2010 07:21 PM
President Barack Obama has “done a good job in trying to stop” the loss of jobs, said Ed Marksberry, the Democratic congressional candidate for the 2nd congressional district.
Marksberry defended Obama’s economic policy but stopped short of calling for a second stimulus bill to halt the “hemorrhaging of manufacturing jobs.”
He also expressed his support for the health care reform bill Congress passed in March.
A resident of Owensboro, Marksberry is making his first run for public office. He is running in what is perhaps the most conservative district in Kentucky, according to recent polling. Marksberry is challenging first-term U.S. Rep. Brett Guthrie of Bowling Green. (Pure Politics is still trying to schedule and interview with Guthrie before Nov. 2).
Here’s the interview with Marksberry:
