Americans for Prosperity, the Super PAC funded by the Koch brothers (who represent the ATM wing of the Republican Party), has just launched a $6.2 million ad buy in 11 states, according to Politico’s Playbook.
The TV spot “features Canadian citizen Shona Holmes talking about the failures of her country’s health care system and accuses Obama of wanting to make the U.S. system more like Canada’s.”
(CBS News) Patriot Majority USA, a group associated with Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, has launched a new TV ad that doesn’t attack a specific candidate but instead criticizes the wealthy conservative donors David and Charles Koch.
“If you spend $400 million you expect something in return,” the narrator says with an image of the billionaire Koch brothers, who are expected to spend hundreds of millions of dollars this election in an effort to defeat Democrats and President Obama. “To buy this year’s election and advance this year’s agenda.”
“What’s their payback?” the ad continues. “Politicians who will pass laws that will benefit special interests but hurt the middle class.”
This is getting kind of . . . granular, as they say . . . no?
Look for an ad attacking you on TV soon.
