The only way according to every poll that Kurt can win is if I, Jack Edward Shepard beat Amy Klobuchar in her DFL primary which would remove Amy Klobuchar's name from the Nov.6 General Election ballot. if I don't beat Klobuchar in her DFL U.S. Senate primary she has over 5 million dollars and a popularity of over 61%. and over 25% lead in the polls against Kurt Bills: so here is the plan to elected a wonderful nice kind guy "Kurt Bill" who is needed in the US Senate immediately. That’s to only reason why I am running! Pro-Life GOP U.S. Senate Candidate Kurt Bills can get elected our next U.S. Senator.Republicans, take advantage of using your vote in the August 14 DFL Primary for Dr. Jack Edward Shepard because that is the ONLY possible way, and the ONLY election in which Amy Klobuchar can be beaten. Last year over 900,000 Conservative Pro-Life Republicans voted in the Minnesota General Election but historically they do not vote in the August Minnesota Primary Elections. In 2006 Klobuchar won her Primary Election with only 230,000 votes. Then Amy went on to win the General Election and beat your Republican Candidate with over 1,300,000 votes. So if only one third of you Conservative Pro-Life Republicans come out this year & vote for Jack Shepard in the Minnesota DFL “Rush Limbaugh Operation Chaos Style” Primary with ONLY ONE single purpose - to knock Klobuchar’s name off the General Election Ballot . to learn more visit www.jackshepardforsenate.com
