Letter: Republicans need to get with times

I would like to address Jack Oberlander, “Heitkamp conducted the most brutal negative campaign ever” (Dec. 2 letter).

Oberlander must have seen and heard what he wanted because Rick Berg lost for reasons other than scare tactics and greed.

I don’t recall Heidi Heitkamp having to have her mother vouch for her in an ad. I don’t recall her having to call up former Sen. Byron Dorgan or Sen. Kent Conrad to stand by her in an ad as Sen. John Hoeven had to with Berg. Or the constant lie of the $176 billion Obamacare will cost us.

I find it disgusting that Berg thought he could jump right from being a representative to a senator when he helped create the worst Congress in the history of the United States with an extremely dismal but deserving approval rating of 9 percent. Republicans are not the party they once were – the party of Presidents Abraham and Theodore Roosevelt.
