Democrats and Republicans both disagree with negative campaigning


WAUSAU, Wis. (WSAU) - Democrats and Republicans don't usually agree on much, but neither side is liking the negative turn this year's election took.

Marathon County Republican party chair Bruce Trueblood says campaigns should be about ideas, and not attacks. "We've got to get back to the ideas that we are all Americans first." Trueblood says attack ads may not have been coming from candidates themselves, but that many of the ads were pushed by Political Action Committees and other outside funding groups.

Democratic party chair Jeff Johnson says the Citizens United decision from the Supreme Court can be pointed to as the source of many of the issues with this year's campaign. "I'd like to see it overturned, and let's go back to the prohibition on corporations and unions being able to spend unlimited money."

The Associated Press is reporting that $8.4 million dollars were spent on ads for the 7th Congressional district, with a majority of those being negative ads against Rep. Sean Duffy or Pat Kreitlow.
