Chris Gibson a clear choice for Congress

(Continued)

In debates and his television advertisements, Schreibman seems content to tell voters what he thinks they want to hear rather than offer a vision for the future. It’s not enough to tell people you are for gun rights and against fracking. It’s not enough to tell folks that your opponent is a bum.

While we are far more comfortable with Schreibman’s positions on social issues, the political adage of “you can’t beat somebody with nobody” applies in this election.

Gibson has worked hard, kept an open mind and — perhaps most impressively — has term-limited himself to serve only eight years in the House.

We see no valid reason to deny him a second term.
