"It is refreshing and most welcome to have Commonwealth Policy Foundation working in our state to provide valuable information and insight on the critical issues of our day. In a media world where there are many voices which espouse views and beliefs contrary to what we read in scripture, the availability of the Commonwealth Policy Foundation as a media resource is a wonderful asset. Its op-ed articles are very helpful to our newspaper and, as a result, to our readers."

Chip Hutcheson, President of the National Newspaper Association, Publisher of The Princeton Times Leader

"The longer I know Richard Nelson the more I appreciate his Christian faith, deep convictions, and tireless commitment to families and communities in the Commonwealth. Richard understands Kentucky values because he shares those values. And he has been a great help to people and churches all across the state who want to see our values preserved. As a fellow Baptist, I never have to wonder where Richard will stand on an issue. As a kind and thoughtful conservative, I never have to worry about how Richard will represent our people or positions. He continues to be a great help especially to those of us who are on the front lines in the religious liberty and right to life battles." 

Paul Chitwood, Executive Director of the Kentucky Baptist Convention

"Richard Nelson has been a regular monthly guest on my FEEDBACK talk show for several years.  I find him very professional in his discussions on the show.  He's interesting and informative, and although he remains true to hjs conservative positions, he presents them in a spirit of good will without being unnecessarily antagonistic.  My listeners, regardless of their political or religious views, respect him for his obvious sincerity which comes across in his broadcasts.  I heartily recommend his programs."
