Basically, McKee thinks Rhode Islanders are the rednecks of New England.

Whatever your political affiliation, you should recognize that Democrat Governor Dan McKee’s “you’re not from here” attack ad on Republican Ashley Kalus is dark and disgusting:

Even if we ignore that it is 100% ad hominem, the ad is demeaning to Rhode Islanders, as if we’re a bunch of hicks who don’t care about reason and policy, but really just care whether you’re in our clique.  Of course, McKee is running ads like this because, along with most Rhode Island Democrats, he wants voters not to judge him based on reason, policy, and proven records.

I’ve seen a lot that bothers me about Rhode Island politics in the last 25 years, but this ad actually physically nauseates me.
