As a candidate for Federal office, I have to tell you that my position would be that it's not the role of the Federal Government in Washington, D.C. to determine what breed of dogs might or might not need to be regulated. That would be an issue for local government. If it were to come up for a vote in Washington, D.C. I would vote against regulation of dog ownership because it's not the role of the Federal Government.
Candidate, US House of Representatives

When he was questioned further, he replied:
I'm not a career politician, I've never run for local office. But if I had my position would be one of personal responsibility. Unless your dog, not it's breed has proven to be a danger to the community the government should have no say.
