As a Southern California resident, I’m disgusted with John Garamendi’s attack ads against Jackie Speier. I am so impressed with Jackie’s positive ads; they really emphasize her character and accomplishments. She is a strong enough candidate to promote herself in an entirely positive manner.
Don’t we want to elect people in California who can run on their own merits? I was already voting for Jackie because of her record on standing up for women, protecting financial privacy, and her goals of using the LG position to truly serve California public universities. But Garamendi’s attacks would have pushed me over the edge, even if I hadn’t already made up my mind.
