GOPAC Lends McDonnell a Hand
GOPAC, a national organization dedicated to electing Republicans to state and local office, launched its first ever multi-media campaign to support Republican gubernatorial nominee Robert F. McDonnell.
The campaign will air cable TV ads and run ads online using Google search engine advertising, Facebook, YouTube, Twitter and other media.
"There is no candidate in the country more important to GOPAC than Bob McDonnell as he campaigns to serve as Virginia's next governor," Chairman Frank Donatelli said. "He personifies GOPAC's belief that good candidates with good ideas run winning campaigns. GOPAC is fully supportive of Bob McDonnell's candidacy."
The first ad, running on cable TV in Northern Virginia and Richmond, began today, but will be brief. Donatelli declined to release the total amount of money to be spent on the campaign.
Democrats were quick to react to GOPAC's decision to help McDonnell.
"This is a desperate attempt by Bob McDonnell and his far-right buddies to change the topic in Virginia,'' said Jared Leopold, a spokesman for the Democratic party. "For more than a week McDonnell has failed to stand up for Virginia's workers and support $125 million in federal funds to stimulate Virginia's economy. A web ad full of platitudes isn't going to change the fact that Bob McDonnell failed to stand up for Virginians."
