Questions and Answers

by Jimmy Carter

I wrote on Monday on behalf of my son, Jack Carter, for his US Senate race in Nevada.  Here are some of the questions that you asked, and my responses.

Thank you.

     There is a desperate need in America to block and reverse the radical departures from the moral and ethical principles that have made ours a great nation.

    This is not a conflict between liberals and conservatives or even between Democrats and Republicans. The unprecedented changes in policy are from those of Ronald Reagan, George H. W. Bush, Gerald Ford, Richard Nixon, Dwight Eisenhower, and also, of course, from those of Democratic presidents.
