Letter: Rice has run on his message
In the state Senate District 13 race, challenger Larry Rice has been running a positive, issue-based campaign against Sen. Joe Gimse. The campaign has consistently focused on Rice's core message of job creation, quality public education, accessible health care, and environmental stewardship.
Unfortunately, in the final days of the campaign, an outside group over which Rice's campaign has no control has been distributing leaflets with a negative message about Gimse (Public Forum, October 29, 2010: "My Vote is for Gimse" by Russell Quist). Voters should be clear that these messages are not the work of Rice or his campaign.
Rice wants voters to know what he will do for District 13 and has stuck to that theme throughout the campaign.
