Governor's race

Ignorant ad has opposite effect

As an Independent, I was undecided about the gubernatorial candidate. Then I saw an ad opposing Rob McKenna. The woman in the ad criticizes him for a list of wrongs, but No. 1 was that he supported George W. Bush.
Rob McKenna, a Republican, actually supported the Republican candidate for president. In fact, most people supported Bush, which is how he became president of the United States of America. He didn't have financial trouble until the end of his term and after that he never ran for office again. And so McKenna must have supported him in the last election. And this is why this woman says that we shouldn't vote for Mckenna.
This ad, so ignorant, so stupid, and so desperate to find fault with a good man is why I'm am voting for McKenna. Thank you, Jay Inslee's campaign, for helping me to decide.
