IN DEFENSE OF DR. DOUG MCKINNEY - The WV for life issued a letter concerning Dr. Mckinney who is running for Chairman of the Republican Party. I support Doug and while I may not agree with his stance a few years ago, I feel he is 99% Pro Life. I am 100% Pro-Life and do not feel abortion is right in any manner(the Republican platform allows it in the case of rape, incest and the Life of the mother(the only time Doug agrees with it). I feel the WV for Life should spend their time getting the Democratic Leaders that have gotten their endorsement in the past(including our "most influential Gov") to change the Dems platform.
WHERE'S THE TAX CUT - Gov. Manchin said he was going to cut the food tax 1% a year every year. Where is it this year.

How can you support Dr. Doug?
My opinion, the man can not be trusted. Dr. Doug is for Dr. Doug and that's, that! You may try to prove me wrong, but Dr Doug won't.

I have know Doug for several years, although not "bosom buddies"(no pun intended), I have know him since around 88/89 when we were involved in the Bport LL when our sons played. I have on several occassions had dealings with Doug, but until the last 3-4 years have not worked real closely with him. I have disagreed with him on several occassions and did not support him for Governor and there are still some things I disagree with him on. I feel however when voting for some one or supporting them(since I do not have a vote)I pick the person that I feel will do the best job, while I do not know Mr. Scott, I feel from what I have read he is a good guy. I feel however Dr. Doug will be the best for the GOP and it will also help Harrison Co.
As far as Doug being only for himself, all politicians are like that somewhat. If that is true though then he will try to do a good job so he will look good. As far as him not being trusted, I can't speak for anyone else, but he has never lied to me. If you have specifics I'm here.
While I'm glad you read my post, I do think you should be willing to use your name.
Also as I said in my post I am very unhappy with the WVFL, not just for the issue with Doug, but other things.

You have seen the blogs William Stewarts etc. You have made comment on them. One thing has to stand out, Dr. Doug will not bring unity to this party. I would never trust him, that does not mean you can't.

We must find a leader who can unite us. As you have seen on other Blogs Dr Doug carries a lot of baggage. Are you doing whats right for the party or placing your friendship ahead of that.

I will see you in Charleston. Sorry you took offense, but what Doug said to me at Clarksburg is between us. When i call him on it, it will be to his face.

I didn't really take offense, I just like to know who I am communicating with. I won't be in Charleston. I can understand what you are saying and accept that.
I am not putting my friendship with Doug, b/c even though I have worked with an know him for years, It is not friendship that makes me support him.
I understand your concern and also I do think Doug can unite the party. I also think Mr. Scott can to, I just think(in my opinion) overall Doug is the best of the two candidates. There are others I would support if they ran.
I would like to communicate with you privately, please e-mail me at
