“I’m a more mature person and a more qualified candidate by having that experience
in the private sector,” Hurt said. “It makes me more understanding; it gives you more experience than just passing laws and talking about theories.”
"I'm not a career politician. I'm not in elected office. I believe in term limits. I think if we move from that, people start thinking about self-interest and not what's in America's interest," Hurt said. "I'm one of you. I'm not in D.C.. I'm not a member of the elite squad. I don't have $2 million. I'm out on the front lines."
