The Democrats Lose a Vote

 

My US Representative is a Republican nonentity who has been in office since 2003. I’m not a Republican, but I’ve voted for him every election because he has the sterling attribute of being not a Democrat. Even though I receive his taxpayer-supported newsletter in the mail occasionally, I can’t tell you what he stands for. I’ve never met him in person, but he seems to have all the personality of a potted plant. A plastic potted plant.

This is a highly Republican district, so in most elections the Democrat Party runs a Who? against him. This year is different. His opponent is a dynamic and charismatic ex-Army helicopter pilot. She obviously has a lot of resources and support. My wife and I have had at least a dozen mailers from her, and every other YouTube video I watch has an ad from her preceding it. What have I heard from the incumbent? Zilch.
