McDonnell Unveils A Pair of New Ads
Republican Bob McDonnell is up on air with two new TV ads today, as predicted in this morning's First Click.
The first ad accuses Democrat Creigh Deeds of "disingenuous" and "deceitful" attacks against him. The second is another attempt to appeal to the female vote post-thesis. For this ad, he had his eldest daughter speak about the values her father taught her and her service in Iraq.
Read the scripts below:
Virginia newspapers condemn Creigh Deeds' "false" attacks on Bob McDonnell.
Deeds' abortion attacks "smacks of desperation."

Creigh Deeds no positive ideas, just dishonest attacks.
"I'm Jeanine McDonnell, Bob McDonnell's daughter. When Dad was elected Attorney General, I was a Platoon Leader in Iraq. Whenever I called home, he always said how proud he was of me. Well, I'm proud of my Dad. Raising three daughters, he encouraged us to be independent and to achieve our goals. He has worked to protect women and children from sexual predators and fight domestic violence. Dad grew up in a middle class military family and the values of hard work and respect are ones he has passed on to us. That's my Dad."
