Responding to Schneider, Senate candidate Rick Bennett says he’s not a career politician

Republican Senate candidate Rick Bennett wants to set himself apart in the race for the GOP Senate nomination as someone who’s not a career politician. He issued the following statement following Attorney General William Schneider’s announcement that he plans to step down as attorney general if he wins the June 12 primary:

 “I read with interest Mr. Schneider’s announcement today that he will step down as Attorney General if he was to win this political contest.  My opponents in this race are playing musical chairs with their political offices,” he said.  “Over the last several years several of my opponents have sought one political title after another:  Treasurer, Secretary of State, Congress, Governor.  The ink is barely dry on their last campaign signs or new letterheads when they jump into a contest in order to seek another political position.  I don’t need a political job.  I want to create jobs and get this economy back on track.”
