Democrats Object to Campaign Ad

Anita Kumar

The Democratic Party of Virginia has sent letters to radio stations asking them to stop airing an ad that criticizes a Senate candidate for letting illegal immigrants get taxpayer subsidized in-state tuition rates.

The party says that's not true, and that when Democrat Albert Pollard was in the House he voted to deny in-state tuition -- not to give it -- as the ad by his opponent, Republican Richard Stuart, claims. Pollard and Stuart are running for Senate District 28 which includes the city of Frederickburg, part of Prince William County and Stafford County.

"Although a broadcast station should provide contrasting views on issues of public importance, it should not broadcast an inflammatory advertisement that contains what is nothing more than a blatant lie,'' the letter states.
