Since it is more than obvious that Jaime Herrera, vying for the 3rd Congressional District seat against fellow Republican David Castillo and Democrat Denny Heck, cannot match either in the arena of ideas, I guess the pettiness and nit picking was bound to come out.
From a supporter and chair of one of the county parties that endorsed her, and who has a track record of not winning elections in her own county, we read a twitter of,
“@nansen: wow, a candidate for congress sends out 4th of July email of events and spells Independence WRONG. #wa03 #wcot #tcot”
First off, what candidate actually writes their own releases? Staff does that.
Misspellings are actually quite common, as we often see in the media.
But, how petty can Herrera’s camp get that after her inability to state a position on an important matter to a Latino Youth Group she recently appeared before, who wouldn’t state a position on immigration until after goaded into it by bloggers, they target something as pitiful as a staffers mistake in spelling?
More and more Herrera shows she is far from ready to represent Washington States 3rd Congressional District.
We do not need such pettiness.
Nansen Malin ought to be ashamed of herself for resorting to such pettiness.
