The following is the text of a sixty-second radio spot that the candidate ran:
"This is Kenneth Stepp, the Democratic candidate for the U.S. House, and Wilma Stepp, and I’d like to read a statement to you, said by a great American:
"We have never any wish to interfere in the political conditions of any other countries. Especially are we determined not to become implicated in the political controversies of the Old World. With a great deal of hesitation, we have responded to appeals for help to maintain order, protect life and property, and establish responsible government in some of the small countries of the Western Hemisphere. * * *"America seeks no earthly empire built on blood and force. No ambition, no temptation, lures her to thought of foreign dominions.”
"That was all said by Calvin Coolidge, Republican President of the United States in his Inaugural Address in 1925. Kenneth Stepp agrees with those words. Republican Hal Rogers votes to keep an American Army of military occupation in Iraq, which was a country at peace when we invaded it. Vote for Democrat Kenneth Stepp for U.S. House of Representatives Kentucky Fifth District. Paid Political Ad, paid for by the Stepp Committee."
