  •  It surprises me that they will spend their (0+ / 0-)

    unlimited treasure chests on negative advertising, when there is more return for them in voter suppression, dirty tricks, rigging vote machinery, burying state attorney generals and local election officials, and other anti-Democratic activities the GOP is so comfortable doing.

    The key, it seems to me, is not allowing any races to be "close enough to steal."  Because when you don't have policies that serve anyone except the vote-buyers, and your candidates are either crazy or repulsive, negative ads aren't going to shift the equation sufficiently.
