Do the job, leave; a NH candidate makes sense
Asked about term limits, Brendan Kelly told WGIR's Jack Heath why he favored them.
Wiser words are rarely spoken, especially from incumbents who like to pontificate about the voter being the best determiner of term limits. "The voter can always toss us out, blah, blah, blah."
The truth is that despite the occasional upset, the reelection rate in Congress remains well above 90 percent.
The overwhelming powers of incumbency keep it that high. Once in office, the incumbent becomes better and better known and can use the office to his or her advantage (even if it is not really helping the constituents).
Think of the "news" generated by incumbents through press releases and TV and radio sound bites that often contain nothing more than the congressman's name, over and over.
