Following Kenton County Attorney Rob Sanders’ annoncement that he will not be running for the position, the Commonwealth Attorney instead signed a petition to file file for fellow Republican, P’Pool.

“I’m confident if Todd is the nominee, he’ll make a great candidate,” said Sanders.

In regards to his announcement to run for the Attorney General position, P’Pool released the following:

“It is hard to truly understand the serious challenges Kentucky families face unless you have actually experienced them. I have endured these challenges and I am ready to offer real solutions to them. That is why I am announcing my candidacy for the Republican nomination to become Kentucky’s next Attorney General.”

In regards to what areas P’Pool looks to focus on if elected, he explained that, “I am deeply committed to addressing our state’s serious drug problem.  It costs Kentucky taxpayers $25,000 to incarcerate a drug addict, and the success rate is less than 4%. The Attorney General must be a leader in addressing this epidemic. I am the founder and president of Western Kentucky Teen Challenge, Inc., a non-profit, faith-based drug recovery prgram that has an 86% success rate for the students who complete the program. Today, our $2 million residential facility is debt-free, and we have 60 beds that are providing effective treatment for men all across our Commonwealth—at no cost to the taxpayer.

“Additionally, the Community Outreach program in my office administers more than 2,000 drug tests per year as an effort to hold addicts accountable for their behavior. My office offers a helping hand to the families struggling with addiction and swiftly serves justice to the dealers and cartels who enter Kentucky to profit and prey upon our families. I will not just give lip service to the fight against drugs; I will take action and get results.

“Many other issues separate me from our current Attorney General. I pledge to fight the government take-over of your health care system. I will immediately join in litagation to stop Obamacare from bankrupting small businesses and harming small hospitals in rural Kentucky.

“I will also take a stand against federal and state efforts to harm our coal industry. Kentucky coal put food on my family’s table for four generations, and unlike our current Attorney General, I will speak out against cap and trade. I will support any litigation efforts that will protect coal miners’ jobs from the stanglehold of the EPA.

“Unfortunately, the EPA power grab does not stop at our coal industry but looks to harm Kentucky agriculture, as well. I will not stand idly by while the EPA raises the cost of farming and places more uneccesary burdens on Kentucky’s farmers. Agriculture needs an Attorney General who will fight the Obama administration’s extremist agenda.

“If elected Kentucky’s next Attorney General, I pledge to serve a four-year term fighting for the people of Kentucky, not pushing the agenda of Barack Obama and liberals in Washington. As your Attorney General, I pledge to rely upon the Constitution and serve as the firewall to the federal government’s overreach.”
