The Democratic lit was truthful, citing figures of tax breaks and loans, but apparently the republicans don't want the truth to get out. As far as signs, the democrats lost countless signs, stolen or torn, I've even seen pictures of people sandwiching the signs, so that they could not be seen. Those were targeted hardest. Before pointing fingers about campaigning, look in the mirror first.
