Rove-founded group funds attack ads against Dem senators in Colo., Ark.
Question of the Day
A group co-founded by Karl Rove announced Tuesday that it is putting nearly $900,000 into attack ads targeting vulnerable Senate Democrats in Colorado and Arkansas, knocking them for their support of the Obama administration’s policies.
Crossroad GPS is spending $460,000 for an ad buy in Denver that calls on Sen. Mark Udall to stop supporting new EPA regulations and opposing the Keystone XL pipeline, claiming the project could create over 40,000 good-paying jobs.
“Call Senator Udall, tell him middle class Coloradans can’t afford more job-killing regulations,” the narrator says in the ad. “Tell him to support Keystone and create jobs.”
Republican Rep. Cory Gardner is trying to unseat Mr. Udall in the November election. The latest Real Clear Politics average of polls shows that Mr. Udall and Mr. Gardner are running neck and neck in the race.
Crossroad GPS is also sinking $435,000 into an ad that highlights Arkansas Sen. Mark Pryor’s support for Obamacare.
“Arkansas families struggle after being told their health plans were cancelled and worry about higher premiums and Medicare cuts, but Senator Mark Pryor voted to allow members of Congress and their staffs to get taxpayer funded healthcare subsidies to help them pay for Obamcare premiums — typical Washington,” the narrator says in the ad, which claims Mr. Pryor supported President Obama 98 percent of the time, including on the health care law. “Tell Pryor Arkansas family can’t afford Obamacare, repeal it.”
Mr. Pryor is facing a challenge from Rep. Tom Cotton. The Real Clear Politics average of polls shows that Mr. Cotton has a 2 percentage point lead in the race.
