Freedom's Watch Ad Taken Off Air in La. Race

A Baton Rouge television station is no longer running an ad attacking Democrat Don Cazayoux (La.) after the House candidate said it was inaccurate.

Democrats said that the ad by Freedom's Watch falsely stated that Cazayoux supported public health benefits for illegal immigrants. The spot is no longer running on WAFB, but Freedom's Watch spokesman Ed Patru said that the station may run the ad again after reviewing it. At least four other stations in the Baton Rouge area are playing the ad, Patru said.

Cazayoux's campaign called it a "desperate attempt" to distract voters from the "real issues."
