What I care about is where Eric Hovde stands on issues, not his bank shares | Letters

Letters to the Editor
Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

In recent piece, the not-so-subtle suggestion is that since Republican U.S. Senate candidate Eric Hovde hasn’t yet disclosed which option(s) he will select to avoid potential conflicts of interest from stock ownership in an obscure Utah bank, there is something sinister going on (“Hovde won’t say if he’ll divest stake in bank,” June 30).

Bice also includes a quote from Democratic Party spokesperson Arik Wolk in which Wolk asserts that Hovde, “Is running for Senate to help himself and his bank make millions of dollars.” Preposterous! Hovde could make significantly more in the private sector.

Is Milwaukee horrible?You don't have to like Trump to see 'horrible' view supported by facts

Biden should step aside.I'm almost 80. I can tell when someone's lost a step.

What I care about is what Hovde will do if elected to combat illegal immigration, crime, unchecked government spending and inflation. Let’s not kneecap him before he’s even elected to office.
