How can an Indy candidate for Senate come out of the blocks and force me to agree with Tom Carper minutes into a campaign?
Alex Pires, who filed Monday to challenge U.S. Sen. Tom Carper as an Independent Party candidate, quickly opened a surprising new line of attack against the Democratic incumbent, questioning Carper’s health.
Pires suggested that Carper is concealing a serious illness, and called Carper’s health the “most important issue” in the race. He called on Carper to release the results of his most recent physical.
“Is Carper competent to go another six years, physically and mentally?” said Pires, a successful lawyer and Dewey Beach business owner. “If he won’t release his physical, obviously he’s not. I think the vast majority of people who watch him at all know he’s not well.”
Carper’s campaign is correct to call Pires’ attacks “unfounded and outrageous.” Carper has the best health-care plan on the planet. The US senate is the Branson Missouri of our tripartite government. It is built to cater to old white people. Doddering cogders like Carper have lasted for decades in the Oxygen rich halls of the Senate. Strom Thurmond was 160 years old when he quit.
On top of all that, there is a lot of legitimate shit to go after when it comes to Tom Carpers record. Look into that for christsake.
