“Send Mrs. Smith to Washington.” That’s the slogan for 1st Congressional District candidate Jacqueline Smith who is challenging fellow Republican incumbent Rob Bishop in the coming election. On KVNU’s Crosstalk show Monday, Smith said she decided to run against Bishop mainly because of is vote for the NDAA, the National Defense Authorization Act, which she says has language in it that allows the president to indefinitely detain Americans without trial or jury. “It’s a big affront to our 4th, 5th, 6th and 7th Amendment rights,” exclaimed Smith. “That was one of the biggest reasons why I got into the race.” Smith said that as she learns more about Bishop, she is discovering more and more reasons why it is time for change. “I voted for him many times in the past, but once I got in to the race I realized he is the #15 ear-marker in all of Congress.” Besides, she says 10 years is long enough for anyone to serve and if she is elected she would only serve a maximum of three two-year terms.
