Negative rhetoric

Los OsosMay 13, 2014 

I know little about either candidate for district attorney. However, I am disinclined to vote for Dan Dow. His current ad on television begins by tearing down his opponent rather than explaining why we should vote for Mr. Dow. It is such negative rhetoric that contributes to the polarization we now experience across the country. Is that the type of person who should be elected to office?
