Sue Kelley Running from the GOP Label?

I caught a TV campaign ad for my Congresscritter, Sue Kelley, last night. The Democrats don’t even have an opponent picked yet, and she is already spending money on her reelection bid. If I did not know for a fact that she was a Republican, I would have sworn that she was running as a liberal Democrat. The ad touted her environmental record and concern for Mother Nature in the beautiful Hudson Valley. At the end, the ad referred in writing to the candidate as an “independent”. Her affiliation with the GOP was not mentioned at all. She was shown wearing casual clothes and playing with children instead of dressed in a suit courting corporate donors or pandering to Christianist nutjobs. She didn’t seem evil at all. Of course, I know better.
