Letter: David Williams, Lincoln

Editor: My fellow Democrats and I will choose a candidate for governor on June 13. The choice is between two men, both progressives, both honorable, both campaigning hard.

But Perriello’s campaign uses a TV ad featuring former President Obama praising Perriello as if Obama were endorsing him in this race. Nowhere is it even hinted that this was a scene from a previous campaign in which Perriello was the duly nominated Democratic candidate for Congress running against a Republican.

I find this offensive and more than a bit dishonest. And that is why I will be casting my primary vote for Northam.
David Williams, Lincoln
