Anti-War Groups Target Collins and Sununu
Americans United For Change and the Maine People's Alliance introduced a new ad this week calling out Susan Collins for voting against ending the war in Iraq. The Bangor Daily News notes that the ad is already causing quite a stir in maine:
State Senate Minority Leader Carol Weston, R-Montville, criticized the ad and the organizations’ use of it to promote their political agendas. She compared it to the "Daisy Ad" that ran during the 1964 presidential campaign...Fortunately, local activists in Maine are already prepared to take Collins to the task:
Ben Dudley, chairman of the Maine Democratic Party, issued a press release Wednesday afternoon criticizing Collins’ record on Iraq and her office’s comments on the ad.
"The conflict in Iraq is perhaps the most serious issue of our time, and Maine people have the right to know where their senator stands," Dudley said. "Susan Collins cannot continue saying one thing in Maine while voting to support the president’s Iraq policy in Washington."
James L. at Swing State Project especially likes the Sununu ad:
Is it just me, or are ads produced by Democratic-allied groups getting stronger and stronger? The Hill takes a look at three ads by Americans United for Change targeting Republican Senators Collins (ME), McConnell (KY) and Sununu (NH). And while the ads against McConnell and Collins are both pretty good, the Sununu edit takes the prize
