Something very ugly began to happen in my community the minute my opponent, Mr. Nisley, entered the race. The atmosphere changed for the worse. I watch the news and see nothing but hate. I listen to the radio and it’s the same thing. The message of hate is out of control. Members of Mr. Nisly’s team talk about purifying the party. Mr. Nisly has been endorsed by the Gun Owners of America, of which he is very proud. Please check out the website of this organization (https://gunowners.org/) and the executive director’s affiliations. It is shocking. What is even more shocking is the fact that Mr. Nisly refused to disassociate himself from the group. I am a member of the National Rifle Association and am proud that even they have distanced themselves from the Gun Owners of America because of their radical views.
We must put a stop to the pervasive attitude of I am right and you are wrong. We have to work together to get things done. There is no room in our district or state government to be hateful. That is not who we are.
