Republican U.S. Senate candidate George Allen is out with his fourth ad in two days on the heels of Monday night’s debate, this one using a friend’s voice to tout his accomplishments as governor.
The ad, titled “Impossible,” features a testimonial from Kay Coles James, a former Virginia secretary of health and human resources in Allen’s administration, highlighting Allen’s work with Democratic legislators.
“Impossible. George Allen heard that before. He proved them wrong,” James said. “As governor, the Democrats controlled the legislature. George worked with them. Welfare reform. Ending parole. Reforming education. They cut taxes, grew our economy, created 300,000 jobs.”
She adds: “Now it’s Washington’s turn.”
“George Allen’s claims of bipartisanship are what’s really impossible to believe for Virginians who saw him pit one group against another for four years as governor and another six years in Washington,” responded Kaine Brandi Hoffine.
“Virginians already gave George Allen a turn at the wheel in Washington and what they got was votes for record cuts to education, increased gridlock, and reckless spending that turned massive surpluses into huge deficits.”
