Heather Ryan held a press conference today called out Ed Whitfield supporters and announced she is expecting. Congrats Heather!
Video of her Press Conference is below.
See her response to the Whitfield campaign below below.
Heather also informed the press that Ed Whitfield declined the KET televised debate scheduled for Monday, October 13, 2008. It seems to me we have a pattern here. Senator Mitch McConnell has dodged 3 debates and now Ed Whitfield is following suit This pattern goes back several years and I have the videos to prove it. During the 2006 2nd District Congressional race Congressman Ron Lewis refused to debate Mike Weaver and I was fortunate enough to get video of Mike Weaver debating a chair. The video of Mike debating a chair is below.
I suggest that it's unpatriotic to ask our troops to fight and die in Iraq and Afghanistan and then deny these troops the opportunity to see the candidates debate the issues that effect their very lives.

Heather Ryan Responds to being called "Fat" by Whitfield Supporters
How often do you hear someone complain about how annoying a man's voice is, or how they refuse to vote for a him because he is hideously ugly? Do you hear a lot of male politicians being criticized because they are fat? These are sexist comments that the Heather Ryan for Congress Campaign deals with every day. However, in an astounding act of defiance, Heather responded today to those critical of her weight at a press conference.

This morning at 10:00 AM Heather confirmed that she is five months pregnant and is not amused by Whitfield's supporters and staff who have made physical features a key topic during this campaign.

"When our economy is reeling from the worst economic crisis in modern history and when our men and women are dying in an unending war in Iraq, I believe our discourse should be about more than weight." Heather said in a statement.

In an interesting timing twist, KET Public Television called just before the press conference to inform the Ryan campaign that her opponent, Ed Whitfield, declined the televised debate scheduled for Monday, October 13, 2008. The reason for why Mr. Whitfield will not attend is unclear, but what is certain is that he owes the people of Kentucky's First Congressional District answers to their questions about the current economic mess but has thus ignored.

Please be sure to tune in to KET on Monday, October 13, 2008 at 8:00 CST to watch the "debate". Heather will be there, even if Ed Whitfield is too cowardice to attend.
