Letter: Party attack ad against opponent not appreciatedRecently a political flier was mailed to selected Minnesota Senate District 4 voters by the Minnesota Republican Party attacking my opponent. It was sent without my knowledge, and I do not agree with the tactic of this piece.
I do not condone a strategy of attacking my opponent in this way. My campaign has been built on a positive message of job creation, fiscal accountability and restoring statesmanship to our Senate.
In the future, I would suggest the party take the money from these types of mailings and donate it to their favorite charity. It would be money better spent.
Hansen is candidate, Minnesota Senate District 4.
