"20-something" is spin. She is young, 25, but that is the same type of lame attack used against 27 year old Sen. Eric Brakey when he ran two years ago, who, as an aspiring actor in NYC, had even less established "life experience" Further, using the Brakey example, he actually was not born and raised in ME, and only moved there to head up RP's 2012 campaign. Rebekah, on the other hand, was born and raised in the district, (and she actually does live there). While they both have deep roots in their respective areas, Rebekah's are more solid.
Continuing, we have Rebekah's current position as Director of The Coalition to Reduce Spending, which has given her a heap of experience on how things actually work in government. Add the fact that she earned a master’s degree in political science/public administration (from University of West Florida,) and you have a local girl with skills and the building blocks of a compelling story.
What part of "had" are you having trouble with?
