The ad continues the previous theme of criticizing Conway for supporting the health care overhaul. In the spot, President Barack Obama is shown driving a car with Conway in the passenger seat as they head down a road marked with “wrong way” signs.
A recent poll shows that support and opposition to the legislation is about even, with a slightly higher percentage of the public opposed to the law and support dropping (even though the bulk of the law hasn’t taken effect). However, seven states that are suing over the legislation are taking advantage of certain subsidies. Maybe that’s why the signs in the ad say “wrong way,” but the street Obama and Conway are heading down is drawn as a two-way road.
American Crossroads announced Friday it will spend ten million dollars in eight states ahead of the November elections.
The get-out-the vote effort by American Crossroads will benefit his opponent, Republican nominee Rand Paul.
The group will contact Republican and independent voters by mail and by telephone, including during a three-day “blitz” leading up to Election Day, to try to get them to the polls, it said in a news release.
It’s not clear how much of the $10 million pot the group will spend in Kentucky, but it’s likely to be a “significant chunk” given the importance of the race, said a spokesman, Jonathan Collegio.
As predicted, the Karl Rove and Ed Gillespie-linked* American Crossroads group has launched an ad in the Kentucky Senate Race. The clip criticizes Democratic candidate Jack Conway for saying he supports the health care overhaul passed in March and for not joining several other state attorneys general in filing suit against the legislation once it became law.
Response ads can be expected, as we’ve heard about two groups planning ads that target Republican candidate Rand Paul.
*Update: American Crossroads says Rove and Gillespie are not formally associated with American Crossroads or Crossroads GPS, though they are “informal advisors.” A number of outlets, however, have reported on the ties between Rove and the group.
Update 2: Here is Conway’s response, from CN2.
