Being in the public eye often subjects individuals to unwarranted and irrelevant scrutiny.
I’ve seen people attacking my opponent on her looks or her body. Recently, I have been subjected to judgment about my physical appearance.
Criticizing someone’s appearance is beneath us.
It's important to recognize that weight is not always a direct reflection of one's health. While serving in the Army, including two tours in both Iraq and Afghanistan, I suffered physical, mental, and emotional injuries. My story is not unlike so many other Vets who have left the service and returned to civilian life. I am not a supermodel and I do not aspire to be one. I walk 6 miles daily, I work out, I lead a busy life, and I do my best to make healthy choices every day.
All that being said, I will not discuss my opponent’s physical attributes. I don’t need to, Her positions and voting record are all I need to confront.
I hope that you will respect and support me for my talents, achievements, and character rather than superficial aspects.
Let’s strive to be an inclusive and compassionate society.
