Below is an attack ad by John Adams against Mark Herring.  The important issue that might sway many voters to go for the new Republican candidate is the issue of Pro-Life and Anti-Abortion.

As a young student with a personal connection to this  recent victim of possible hate crime I am persuaded to vote for Mark Herring.  To me the respect of life should be throughout an entire life and not just for the unborn.  Here is what I know about Nabra and why voting to be tough on hate crimes is so important to me;
