My wife and I spent the better part of 40 minutes this evening with Jeff Fortenberry and his family. He impressed me as an honest and forthright idividual. Jeff is politically savy, but is reletively new to the national political seen and knowledge of the firearms issues has not been something he has had to deal with.
I had originally intended to interview him with some very poinient questions about his thoughts on firearms legislation. As it turns out he had more questions for me than I of him. In the short time I spent with him I am convinced that he really wants to understand the issues. I am convinced that. if elected, he will make well informed, fair and balanced decisions on all of the issues he will be called to vote on.
As I alluded to in a previous post I hoped that Jeff would be his own man when it comes to these issues. I came away from our meeting believing that Jeff Fortenberry will be his own person.
At his request I am not publishing the things we spoke of this evening. It is his idea that we get together at a future time for more than an imprompt interview, the results of whichhe wishes to be published. He also insisted that we stay in touch on firearms issues.
As a firearms owner I think that Jeff Fortenberry deserves all of our support for his candidacy for U.S. Representitive of the First Congressional District of the State of Nebraska.
