RNC to Run First General Election Ad Targeting Obama


The party’s independent expenditure arm will go up on air beginning Sunday in Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Ohio, and Michigan going after the Land of Lincolner on energy.

Politico: The ad buy is for about $3 million and would run over the four states for “a couple of weeks.”

Meanwhile: The Obama camp releases statement asking,”Will the new McCain-RNC ads contradict McCain’s pledge to run a positive campaign?”

The RNC responds: “How can Obama call for a positive campaign, even as his surrogates continue to unapologetically smear John McCain?”
