The Senate primary was nasty between the leading Republican candidates. To me, a good candidate is a person who doesn't spend lots of campaign dollars to spread false promises and smear the opposing candidate's name. That's not what I think our hard-earned dollars are for. Candidates are supposed to make our lives precious and valuable so our kids grow up better and don't leave Alaska. It's really all about their future.
This general election campaign is different. Bob Merchant is running, so there's no smearing going on. Bob doesn't live that way. Respected voters should be glad we have a candidate like Bob Merchant to vote for. We need a man like Bob representing us in Juneau. Vote Bob Merchant.
