The U.S. Senate ads keep coming.
After conservative group Crossroads GPS yesterday launched two new ads targeting Democratic nominee Timothy M. Kaine, Majority PAC and the League of Conservation Voters went on the attack against Kaine’s rival, George Allen.
The groups have launched two new ads accusing Allen of having a cozy relationship with the oil and gas industry, and attacking his votes as a U.S. Senator to raise his own pay.
The ads, titled “Worked for Them” and “Wrong” are similar, both beginning with a narrator saying, “We sent him there to fix it, but somewhere along the way, something went horribly wrong.”
“Wrong” accuses Allen of supporting tax breaks for corporations shipping jobs overseas while “Worked for Them” focuses on Allen’s relationship with oil and gas companies.
The two ads are part of a $1.6 million campaign against Allen.
“Tim Kaine continues to rely on his liberal allies and Majority PAC financiers George Soros, Harry Reid and Chuck Schumer to run misleading ads designed to hide Tim Kaine’s tax and regulate agenda for more job loss,” responded Allen campaign spokeswoman Emily Davis.
“While championing a run up of $5 Trillion in national debt under President Obama, Tim Kaine stands for the assault on American energy by supporting Cap-and-Trade, opposing the Keystone pipeline and supporting EPA regulations that will devastate jobs in Virginia.
In addition to the new Crossroads ads attacking Kaine, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce is up with a new ad attempting to tie Kaine to “union bosses.”
