Here is a July 12, 2012 open letter from my former primary opponent and current active supporter, Kevin Keith:

 Dear Supporters and Voters:

 Following my eleven-month campaign for the Court of Appeals, Place 2 seat in which I finished third, I received inquiries from both of the run-off candidates for an endorsement of their candidacy.  Throughout the campaign I had nearly daily interaction with both of the remaining candidates and listened to their campaign speeches and, more importantly, to the veracity of their answers to the questions at countless candidate forums.  As a result, I decided to endorse Bill Whitehill in the Court of Appeals, Place 2 run-off because he is a scholar of the law who I believe has the integrity, honesty, temperament and demeanor to work effectively as a Justice on the Fifth Court of Appeals.  I am also confident that Bill can be counted upon to apply conservative principles consistently and efficiently in doing the important work of the Fifth Court of Appeals.

 Respectfully yours,

 /s/ Kevin J. Keith
