Ms. O'Donnell opens her first general election TV ad by asserting she is not a witch, a reference to a 1999 late-night talk-show appearance in which she said she had “dabbled” in witchcraft as a teenager.
The ad was produced by Strategic Perceptions, which was also behind the “Demon Sheep” ad earlier this year for California Senate candidate Carly Fiorina. That ad, which went viral on the Internet, portrayed Mrs. Fiorina’s GOP primary opponent, Tom Campbell, as a demonic wolf in sheep’s clothing, only pretending to be another member of a herd of fiscal conservatives, but in reality a “fiscal conservative in name only.”
Conservative ends run for House
SARANAC LAKE | A Conservative Party candidate has dropped out of a U.S. House race in northern New York, telling his backers they should vote for the Republican who defeated him in last month’s primary.
Doug Hoffman says he didn’t intend to split the Republican vote when he decided to continue his run on the Conservative Party line after losing the GOP nomination to Matthew Doheny, who’s challenging incumbent Democrat Bill Owens for the 23rd Congressional District seat.
Mr. Owens won a special election last year after a challenge by the “tea party”-backed Mr. Hoffman forced Republican Dede Scozzafava out of the race. But her name remained on the ballot and she and Mr. Hoffman split the GOP vote. That allowed Mr. Owens to narrowly win the seat Republicans had held for decades.
Mr. Hoffman’s decision was first reported Tuesday by the Adirondack Daily Enterprise.
The TV ad, which the campaign said was released statewide Tuesday, opens with a series of clips of football players dancing in the end zone. A four-second clip shows Mr. Moss clearly wearing his Minnesota Vikings uniform. The others featured are not playing in NFL games.
