I think that it is not good for a civic forum to put that fear misinformation and lies out there. Look at the rise of Fox News and look at the rise of politicians who are play fast and loose with the truth and it's not okay. I think that washingtonian voters are smarter than that. State Republican Party chair Caleb heimlich calls it unfortunate, but says its reality that negative ads work. As long as voters keep rewarding those that run negative ads by voting for them, the ads are going to continue to get more negative. I think it is fair to criticize someone for their votes, criticize someone for the policies and the laws that they implemented and criticize people for the results of those policies. Democrats have also repeatedly accused Republicans of racist tactics which heimlich calls a quote blatant lie and says he would absolutely denounce. Ryan Harris northwest news radio.
