Missouri Viewpoints Interview with Republican Congressional Candidate Jacob Turk (5th District)

January 22nd, 2008 by mopns · No Comments

In the first of a series of interviews with incumbents and candidates in the races for statewide and federal offices, Jacob Turk discusses some of today’s top issues on “Missouri Viewpoints”.

Turk was the Republican nominee in Missouri’s 5th District Congressional race in 2006 and is now making his second run for the seat held by Emanuel Cleaver.

During the interview, Mr. Turk explains why he feels the economy is stronger than some pundits claim. He also discusses why he supports President Bush’s newly announced “tax rebate” plan to stimulate the economy, saying “…when you give the folks their money back, the economy takes off”.

Turk also talks about his support for continuing the war in Iraq and why he feels that political efforts to withdraw U.S. troops would “…cede the field of combat to our enemies”.
