Asian Carp is emerging as an election year issue up here in the Great Lakes.
In an email last week, Mitt Romney told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel:
“I am outraged that, five years after Congress ordered the Army Corps of Engineers to identify a solution, we are still years away from a recommendation.”
“America put a man on the moon in less time than that. As president, I will accelerate the Army Corps process and ensure that they develop a plan as soon as possible to protect both the ecology and economy of the region.”
I appreciate that Romney shares my – and thousands of people across the Great Lakes -frustration with the slow progress of finding a solution to stopping Asian carp from invading the Great Lakes.
But the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel again asks the question: Where has Mitt been all these past months on the Carp here?
When it comes to Asian carp politics, later is certainly better than never.
