Dem super-PAC launches $7M final Senate push

The ad buy comes on the heels of a huge $10.5 million Senate ad buy from the GOP-aligned American Crossroads and Crossroads GPS. The two are playing in many of the same states, though Crossroads is not on the air in Connecticut, where Republican Linda McMahon (R) is self-funding her race, and is up in Maine, Nebraska and New Mexico, three less competitive states.


The Virginia ad is particularly rough, featuring people talking about future ailments and attacking former Sen. George Allen (R-Va.) for opposing embryonic stem cell research. "How come he gets to decide who lives and who dies?" a little girl asks in the ad.

The Wisconsin ad says former Gov. Tommy Thompson (R) "made millions from corporations that outsourced American jobs" and promise Rep. Tammy Baldwin (D-Wis.) will fight outsourcing. In Indiana, the group rips state Treasurer Richard Mourdock (R) for opposing bipartisanship, notably not mentioning his recent comments on abortion and instead focusing on other controversial remarks.

The group also says Rep. Denny Rehberg (R-Mont.) voted to raise his pay and is "out for himself," accuses Rep. Rick Berg (R-N.D.) of using taxpayer money for personal benefits and attacks Rep. Connie Mack (R-Fla.) for being involved in "bar brawls, road rage, resisting arrest" and "needing his father to pay his taxes."
