Democratic — not Democrat — Party

Someone should notify State senator Toni Boucher that the name of the opposition party is NOT Democrat Party, but Democratic Party. By calling it improperly “Democrat Party” she aligns herself with Newt Gingrich who, if I recall, began saying Democrat years ago in an attempt to denigrate the Democratic Party. In fact, this mischaracterization may even go back to Senator Joe McCarthy.

It should behoove a state senator to get the name right.
