James D. Black, of Barbourville, Knox
statement announcing his candidacy for the Democratic nomination for Lieutenant Governor in the Primary Election, August 7, 1915.
Democrats of Kentucky: Itecognizlns, in the fullest sense, your right
to choose at the Primary Election to bo held in August, 1915, those whom
you prefer to be the candidates of the party to be voted for at the general
election in next November, I am a candidate, subject to your will tole
said Primary Election, for the nomination for Lieutenant Governor
on the Democratic ticket. I am induced, in a measure, to make this announcement by a desire of my own to serve the people of our splendid State in the
capacity of Lieutenant Governor, and also, in a measure, by suggestions of a
few individuals whose personal and political friendship is real and in whose
judgment I have and ought to have confidence. My past fealty to the Democratic party may be accented by you, I confidently trust, as a sufficient
guaranty that I shall, whether nominated or not, give to the ticket you may
name- - and the principles for which our party stands, very faithful support,
for that course has been my habit at all time3 since reaching legal age. If
nominated and elected Lieutenant Governor, I promise you and the people of
Kentucky to bring to the discharge of the duties of the office the very-be- st
service of which I may be capable. Whether or not I am equipped to properly
flischarge of those duties,- it is not for me to say. I submit that to your judgment and' decision. I believe in a just and wise economy in public as well
as in private business, and cordially agree that no ons should be entwisted
with responsible office who is not able and willing to perform his whole
duty to the public whose interests he asks to be commissioned to serve. I
believe those on whom the Constitution places the duty and responsibility of
legislation for the people of the State ought to industriously employ the time
