Question of the Day
Super PAC injects cash into Indiana Senate race
A conservative super PAC affiliated with Republican strategist Karl Rove has jumped back into the Indiana Senate race with a nearly $1 million ad purchase highlighting Democratic nominee Joe Donnelly’s support for President Obama’s policies.
The Indiana buy is part of more than $6.4 million worth of airtime that Crossroads GPS and American Crossroads bought this week against Democrats in six competitive Senate contests, according to Federal Election Commission records. The money was also dedicated to Senate races in Florida, Ohio, Virginia, Nevada and Wisconsin.
Indiana, while appearing firmly in GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney’s camp, is emerging as a battleground state for control of the Senate. Groups supporting Democrats also have poured about $1.5 million into the race in the past six weeks, hoping to take away the seat held for 36 years by Republican Sen. Richard G. Lugar.
Cherokee chief slams antics of Sen. Brown’s staff
A top Cherokee chief has called several of Sen. Scott P. Brown’s campaign staffers “offensive and downright racist” for making war whoops and tomahawk chopping motions at a rally for their boss earlier this week.
“The conduct of these individuals goes far beyond what is appropriate and proper in political discourse,” said Bill John Baker, principal chief of the Cherokee Nation. “It is those types of actions that perpetuate negative stereotypes and continue to minimize and degrade all native peoples.”
The staffers were caught on video making fun of claims by Elizabeth Warren — Mr. Brown’s Democratic opponent — that she is part Cherokee.
