From the Rick for Congress Committee:
March 28, 2012
Senator Nancy Jacobs’ Congressional Campaign has sent women voters a misleading letter which misrepresents facts. Most despicable is the statement,
“She vowed to never to run a negative campaign and she has never broken that promise. Unfortunately, the same cannot be said of those who oppose her in this race. They have attempted to paint her in an unfavorable light through an aggressive series of negative phone calls full of misleading distortions and hate.”
I, for one, have never done any robocalls whatsoever, so she should be clear and honest about whom she is referring to. “Misleading distortions and hate” are very strong words, and if true, Ms. Jacobs should clearly articulate what these hateful statements are, because at this point I am not aware of any.
Pointing out Senator Jacobs’ past and current voting record is clearly not negative campaigning. If they are her votes and her positions, she should be proud of them, or explain why they were the wrong thing to do. Apparently Senator Jacobs only wants to run on her endorsements, and not run on her past and current history. Apparently she believes that women will vote for her just because she is a woman. I disagree. I believe women will research all the candidates and make their choice to vote for the candidate that will best represent them in Washington.
If the statements that Senator Jacobs has made are true, our constituents, the press, and I need to know exactly what the “misleading distortions and hate” consist of. If they are not true, she needs to do some explaining of her false accusation, and why she has broken her promise not to run a negative campaign.
My cell phone number is 443-257-4782. I would be happy to meet with any of the press and provide them with a copy of the Jacobs letter.
