Republicans roll out early attack ads on Harry Reid
If you thought it was safe to turn on the television without seeing a political attack ad, think again. At least in Reno.
The ad notes that Reid voted for the $700-billion bailout package this year and supports President Obama's new stimulus package again this year. As a hammer slams into a piggy bank, the ad asks:
And now he wants a trillion more dollars in new spending? A trillion dollars? Tell Harry Reid to stop wasting our hard-earned money.
Last time we checked, Reid had $3 million in his campaign coffers and no strong Republican opponent.
But maybe the Republicans hope to repeat their feat as dragon-slayers from the 2004 election, when they targeted and defeated Majority Leader Tom Daschle of South Dakota, now, of course, President Obama's secretary of Health and Human Services.
