Ad of the Day: 'Who is Ken Buck?'
The Fix's Aaron Blake reports that Democrats are going negative early in the 2010 campaign cycle, and they are doing it often. This includes Sen. Michael Bennet (D-Colo.) who is in a tough race with Republican candidate Ken Buck. In this ad, Buck takes the same route as Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid of Nevada (also in a tight race against Republican candidate Sharron Angle), using Buck's own words against him.
The ad features Buck -- in his own words -- questioning the constitutionality of Social Security, the Department of Education and federal student loans. Buck also says he does not support exceptions for abortions in the cases of rape or incest.
The ad is very hard-hitting and 100 percent about Buck, save the obligatory Bennet disclaimer at the start of the ad. It's also exactly what Democratic leaders are looking for.
