On September 28, the New Hampshire GOP released a statement targeting my campaign for digital ads that featured Kevin Avard's grandchildren in the background of an image. I would like to make it clear that I do not condone these ads, and I am disgusted that they would put children in the spotlight to benefit a political campaign.
Candidates' families should be off-limits, period. This digital campaign continues a recent disturbing trend from national politics of personal attacks that we should not accept in New Hampshire. My campaign nor the Democratic Party had anything to do with this ad. I will continue to run a positive factual campaign and draw factual differences between me and my opponent.
