We'd be the first to admit that the current campaign to fill Ernie Fletcher's congressional seat has been one of the worst we've ever witnessed. The radio and television advertising by both candidates has been inane, shallow, negative and, in some cases, downright dishonest.
But as turned off as we - and perhaps many other 6th District voters - may be by the quality of the campaign, we still must choose on Tuesday whether we want Republican Alice Forgy Kerr and Democrat Ben Chandler to represent us in the U.S. Congress.
For us, the choice is easy. Kerr is clearly the conservative candidate in this race who is most likely to be on the right side when it comes to the important issues that face our country and our state at this time: the war on terrorism, retaining the Bush tax cuts, energizing the national and Kentucky economies, and medical malpractice reform and other health-care issues.
