My mom is thinking about voting for Law (R) over Brown (D) for state rep
mostly because she met and liked Law. I know nothing about this race as I don't live in her district. Thoughts?

1. I was at a candidates' forum with Nancy last month and
Lisa and Dave Law were two of the candidates there. If your mother cares anything about embryonic stem cell research, he was adamantly opposed to it. Maybe that's enough to get her to change her mind? He and Pappageorge kept harping on the fact that they were against it. The audience reacted very strongly, of course, it was a mostly Democratic audience at a local synagogue.
