GOP Group Launches Attack Ads

Anita Kumar

Another day, another new ad.

The Republican Governors Association started airing new negative TV and radio ads across the state (except for Northern Virginia) today against Democrat Creigh Deeds.

The ads focus on Deeds's vote last year to raise the gas tax (to pay for roads and transit) and says that he would support other tax increases "even in a bad economy."

"We already know that Creigh Deeds wants to pump up spending in Richmond," RGA spokesman Mike Schrimpf said. "So it's no surprise that he wants to pump up the taxes too, even if it means further deflating the economy."

The RGA ads come a day after Deeds started his own attack ad against Republican Bob McDonnell on social issues. We did ask the Deeds campaign for a reaction to the RGA ads but have yet to hear back

See below for the longer radio version:

With polls showing McDonnell posting a large lead over Deeds specifically on the issues of taxes and spending, this is a great ad from McDonnell. The Warner-Kaine campaign legacy (rather than actual governing legacy) was one of fiscal responsibility and restraint. Deeds can say he fits the mold, but his actions suggest otherwise. Deeds, not words.

I guess Republicans would rather borrow money to pay for roads and transit? Or they want no roads? Just let infrastructure collapse? Maybe they can explain how saying no taxes over and over pays for the necessary things that government does. Or maybe they can't explain it because they're just the party of NO!
