Owensboro retiree enters U.S. Senate race

November 16, 2009

The Associated Press is reporting that 85-year-old Gurley L. Martin of Owensboro, a retiree, has decided to enter Kentucky’s 2010 U.S. Senate race.

From the AP –

Gurley L. Martin said he is running “just because I can.”

The World War II veteran paid the $500 filing fee on Monday to run. He will likely face two well-financed Republicans, Secretary of State Trey Grayson and Bowling Green eye surgeon Rand Paul. Both have raised more than $1 million for their campaigns.

Hard to argue with that logic.

Though Paul and Grayson have the highest profiles among the Republicans who have announced they will seek the seat currently occupied by U.S. Sen. Jim Bunning, Martin becomes the first Republican to officially file for the office with the Kentucky Secretary of State’s office.

Martin has already set up a Web site, complete with a copy of his birth certificate to defend against any questions about his citizenship and a letter outlining the reasons he is running for office.

    After having reviewed various & sundry comments of OTHERS – regarding the candidacy of “Gurley L Martin” U.S. Senator – representing Kentuckians & the State of Kentucky in the U.S. Congress: Let it be known to ALL Citizen/Voters of this Commonwealth that Gurley L is NOT running against anyone or against any philosophy/belief – Gurley L (IS) absolutely serious about running (FOR) his life & the life of this “One of a Kind” People, State & Nation – as established by the REAL “Greatest Generation” of all time – A State & Nation with “The Constitution” – once again – so universally popular that NO PARTY would dare to oppose IT! If the people & the state are to once again be GREAT -the “National/Federal” government must be SMALL & not just smaller! So Help Me/Us – God, through the Word who became Jesus Christ; the Son of God & wo-man; the 2nd Adam… – BE IT SO – Gurley L Martin…
    P.S: “This Constitution is sufficient only for a moral and religeous people – it will suffice for no other” – quoating the 5th president of the United States of America – “James Monroe” – one of “the” greatest generation – wihout doubt, and that is for certain!

    Gurley L Martin – with a little help from the “Father” thru the “Son” & the (people) of Kentucky – IS – both planning & working to become the next – newest & oldest -Senator representing both Kentucky & Kentuckians in the United States Congress in Washington D.C. Once again -BE IT SO…!
