The Arkansas Republican Party sure seems to have an interesting line-up of Senate candidates. Check out these statement from retired Army officer Curtis Reynolds.

“When I joined the military I took an oath to defend the Constitution against enemies foreign and domestic,” Reynolds said. “I never thought it would be domestic, but in today’s world I do believe we have enemies here. It’s time for people to stand up. It’s time for us to speak out.”

He added: “We need someone to stand up to Barack Obama and his policies. We must protect our culture, our Christian identity.”

When he got to the Q&A session, he said that he would be careful with his answers, “I don’t want to do a Kim Hendren,” and later clarified that he was not categorizing President Obama as a domestic enemy.Kim Hendren is a state Senator who referred to Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) as “that Jew,” and subsequently apologized — saying he meant to state his support for “traditional values.”

Another candidate is businessman Curtis Coleman, who said people need vaccinations to visit Southeastern Arkansas.
