Cheney Endorses Grayson

Former Vice President Dick Cheney has endorsed Trey Grayson. Cheney -- no slouch on national security -- assessed records of Grayson and Rand Paul and determined that Grayson is the legitimate conservative. The Grayson campaign press release quotes Cheney:

“I’m a lifelong conservative, and I can tell the real thing when I see it. I have looked at the records of both candidates in the race, and it is clear to me that Trey Grayson is right on the issues that matter – both on fiscal responsibility and on national security,” said Vice President Dick Cheney.

“The challenges posed by radical Islam and Al Qaeda are real and will be an on-going threat to our domestic security for years to come. We need Senators who truly understand this and who will work to strengthen our commitment to a strong national defense and to whom this is not just a political game. Trey Grayson knows we must stay on offense in the fight against terrorism by keeping the terrorist detention facility at Guantanamo Bay open and trying terrorist suspects using military tribunals, supporting the troop surges in Iraq and Afghanistan, and maintaining the Patriot Act so we can effectively monitor the activities of terrorists abroad. There is no doubt that the real conservative in this race is Trey Grayson, and there is no better choice for Kentuckians in May and November.”
