Knowing S--- About War

 In Defying the Odds, we discuss state and congressional politics as well as the presidential race

Congressional candidate M.J. Hegar earlier got acclaim for an ad titled "Doors."  Though running well behind in the polls, she is closing strong with a new ad.

Morgan Gstalter at The Hill:
In a new television ad, a Democratic House candidate from Texas who is also a combat veteran says her GOP opponent doesn't know “shit” about war.

MJ Hegar posted the minute long campaign ad on Friday after her opponent, Rep. John Carter (R), compared their campaign to a war, according to the Temple Daily Telegram.

“It’s a war … We’re going to win. I’m ahead, and I will stay ahead,” Carter said at a local event. “I will beat this lady.”

Hegar responded to Carter in her new ad.

“Well, respectfully congressman, you don’t know shit about war,” she said.
