Enquirer: Bradley likely bound for a national stage
The Cincinnati Enquirer has printed an extensive piece on Ohio's new Lt. Gov., Jennette Bradley (R), who appears in next month's Jet magazine.
"In four years she will be in high demand," said Ohio Republican Chairman Bob Bennett, who foresees a prime speaking position for her at the 2004 presidential convention. "I think the opportunities for her right now are unlimited."
While Ms. Bradley's position on Concealed Carry Reform is undetermined, she drew criticism during the 2002 campaign for her liberal stance on social issues such as extending health benefits to gay partners in Columbus and for being pro-choice when it comes to abortion.
Ms. Bradley says she picked up many of her political beliefs from her father - an Army master sergeant who served two tours in Vietnam.
Let's hope Mst. Sgt. Bradley was pro-choice when it came to self-defense, and that he passed that same value on to his daughter.
As lieutenant governor, Ms. Bradley says she hopes to listen to and lobby for people from all walks of life. She says she plans to put her access to the bully pulpit to good use.
