When one has no accomplishments to point to in order to bolster their reelection bid they turn to telling the public why they shouldn't vote for "the other guy/woman" instead. That is called campaiging from a position of insecurity. Any politician in this day and age (from both sides of the aisle) will tell you anything you want to hear to be elected, that is the fact, and the shame of the profession. They are all whores.

The most compelling reason to NOT vote for a democrat is to prevent obama from gaining the House, which is the last bastion against his socialist/fascist vision for our country.

Well, Mr. Leon, "monkey see, monkey do". Trey Radel is gone, welcome to the new "Trey" from the 19th times 3.

The biggest "ISSUE" these 3 Republicans are promising is to "REPEAL" Obamacare. The Publicans in Congress have tried 53 times in the past 2 years.

You still don't get! This crowd running for the 19th is a very angry and negative group, including the female candidate, BECAUSE they know that is what the voters here demand. BTW, they can't all be wrong about their opponents!

Blinders come in handy!

Which candidate are you, Mr. Cape Republican, supporting?

Agree, Avatar. I'll take it a step further. If these right-wing, nut case Republicans insist on following the path they're on, Little Richard won't have to worry about their negativity and in-fighting. April Freeman will mop the floor with whichever one ends up on top (or bottom) of the pile. I think most people have had their fill of politicians in the mode of a Roaring Ride with Radel. Any more of this negative, nasty name-calling and it will be curtains, big time.

It is time to reject the Republican Party and vote for the Democrat, April Freeman in the general election!

I've been politically aware for a long time and I don't remember anything this ugly. Just wonder what's going to happen as we approach mid term elections. I envision Richard Nixon watching these ads and commenting "And I think I was getting attacked."

Negative campaign attacks have been around for a long time and will be here long after we’re all gone. But, I must agree the candidates in this district are exceptional in their ability to find the dirt and make it public. Each day there seems to be something new and alarming. To some observers it surly gives the impression the party is imploding from the widespread hate and resentment the candidates show to one another. With some of the latest revelations Trey Radel seems like a choirboy. Perhaps the Primary ballot should contain a voting option of; NONE OF THE ABOVE.
