“Chicago Machine”

New McCain TV ad changes the subject to Obama’s Chicago ties.

Mentions the mayor’s brother and Obama adviser William Daley, developer Tony Rezko, Senate leader Emil Jones and Gov. Rod Blagojevich.

“With friends like that, Obama is not ready to lead.”

Plays off theme from St. Paul convention attacks.

Watch it above. Read script here.

Campaign claims “the ad will be televised nationally.” Amount and length of buy TBD.

Obama camp responds: Calls ad a “false, gratuitous attack.” Statement here.
