Good letter.

As to another aspect of Herger, I was disappointed that he would not debate you in the primary. His stating he "doesn't debate fellow Republicans" is poppycock. If you and Herger had been running neck to neck in the primary, you can bet he would have debated you if it gave him a better chance to win.

As an aside, I hope that you will return to the DN with a weekly column like the one you formerly had. The column was interesting and seemed well thought out. It was heads above any other conservative column in the DN.

I don't call it a cheap shot. I call it as the normal dirty politics associated with elections.

I am a conservative Democrat but I would have voted for Pete because he is at least honest and not a phony like the rest of our rupublican politicians. All this "I am so insulted" bull from Herger makes him sound like he is weak minded. Man-Up Herger!

Sounds like the sore loser has decided to join the Democrats. Memo to Pete: You lost. Get over it.
