ELECTION: Connelly seems obsessed with winning at all costs

Another glossy mailer from Jack Connelly arrived today, as they have every few days for months, paid for by the nearly $1 million Connelly has spent in his effort to replace Jeannie Darneille in the State Senate.

As it joins the growing stack of cardboard invective, one can only marvel at Connelly’s single-minded obsession about Darneille. He is not just out to win a campaign for political office. He will spend any amount of money, twist the meaning of any vote, make any outrageous claim; no matter, in his mind Darneille must be gotten out of office at any cost.

If those are his usual operating methods; if that’s how he attacks any problem confronting him, one shudders to contemplate the havoc he would create in the Legislature if actually elected.

We need someone who can occasionally listen, hear the other side and find value in an opposite opinion. We don’t need another slash-and-burn crusader in the Legislature.
