Cleveland, August 8 – Representing Gov. John Kasich following the Fox News debate in Cleveland on Thursday evening, Sen. John Sununu discussed Kasich’s “message of inclusiveness.” Kasich would “build our economy up so we have the resources to make sure that people are not left behind,” Sununu added.
Read his entire interview:
Q: If I were a voter with a disability, what would the candidate’s message be to why they should vote for him?
Sununu: I think really John spoke to that issue a couple of times tonight. The understanding that economic growth isn’t an end in and of itself. We build our economy up so we have the resources to make sure that people are not left behind. If they have a disability, a mental illness, a drug addiction, that they know that there is going to be someone there for them trying to ensure that they have as many opportunities as anyone else in society. And that’s the way John lives his life. That’s the way he’s served in Congress; that’s clearly the way he’s led here in Ohio.
Q: I know he’s worked on jobs for people with disabilities in particular. Is that something that is near and dear? Or is that just one of the many things he does?
Sununu: I think it’s again, it’s part of that message of inclusiveness that I just spoke about, and I think it’s something he believes in very passionately.
Q: Thank you very much.
