I almost went Republican on that one, which would be the first time I've gone Republican in a statewide race since William Weld vs. John Silber. But then I read his candidate statement, where he said that govt doesn't create jobs, the private sector does. In this county, the top two employers are the public university and the county, followed by retail chains that pay minimum wage. Let's not forget the huge federal military presence here, either, or the defense contractors in this state. Yeah, I call bullshit on that. I'd intended to vote for him, because he's done a good job as AG and I was hoping the Republican Party would get the message to put up more moderate candidates instead of the crazypants they've tried to inflict on us the last five election cycles. But when he spouted untruths that toed the party line, I got pissed off.
