The Susan B. Anthony List unveiled two elements of its aggressive midterm advertising campaign this week.
In West Virginia, the anti-abortion group is targeting Rep. Alan Mollohan (D) for his vote in favor of healthcare reform. It made a $30,000 radio buy that is airing on AM and FM stations, and could be heard more than 100 times a day because of the size of the markets. The minute-long ad says the 14-term Democrat "betrayed" his constituents.
"Alan Mollohan betrayed us and voted to spend federal dollars -- our dollars -- on abortions," the announcer says. The GOP primary to decide who faces Mollohan is May 11.
In Nevada, the group spent $50,000 on a spot praising Republican Senate candidate Sue Lowden. It's airing on talk and Christian stations.
"In the state senate Sue Lowden led the fight for legislation that required parents be notified if their teen daughter was seeking an abortion," the announcer says in the ad.
