Eric Cantor’s campaign has responded to an ad run by his Democratic challenger, Wayne Powell with a snarky response email to the 7th District congressman’s Republican supporters.
Entitled, “Wayne Powell wants you to think he is a Republican,” the email is a play on Powell’s commercial, which ends with a prospective Republican voter closing the door in Powell’s face after he learns that despite his agreement with Powell’s positions on spending, jobs and term limits, Powell is a Democrat.
“Wayne Powell: A Democrat who just might be your kind of Republican,” the Powell ad concludes.
“Really, Wayne? Really?” asks the Cantor campaign email, sent to Republican supporters earlier this week. The email then ticks off a number of positions it claims Powell takes that run contrary to Republican beliefs.
“No, Wayne, you are not our kind of Republican. In fact, you’re too liberal to even be our kind of Democrat.”
