I know “negative” campaign ads are supposed to “work,” but they don’t work with me. I don’t believe that this opponent personally carries illegals on her back across the Rio Grande. I seriously doubt that that one wants to ban Dr. Seuss or Martin Luther King Jr. from the school library. And I’m almost certain that the one over there doesn’t intend to harm “our kids.” These ads do, however, cause me to think less of you. If you want my vote, give me a reason, any reason, to vote for you.
