Updated: U.S. Chamber airs ads in governor's race
Have you heard or seen the radio or TV ads being paid for by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce in the Virginia governor's race?
They've been airing since last week in Northern Virginia and will be up through Election Day. The topic is transportation.
But the chamber, which has not endorsed Democrat Creigh Deeds or Republican Bob McDonnell, refuses to share the ad, script or message with us.
It's an odd strategy -- considering that the ads are already on the air in the state. What is the nation's largest business group trying to hide?
In addition, the chamber is airing TV ads across the state on the so-called card check legislation that would remove the secret ballot from union elections. They won't give us any information on that one either, but we know where chamber officials stands on that issue: They oppose the bill.
McDonnell has repeatedly tried to pressure Deeds to talk about controversial issues, and accused him of supporting the card check bill. I guess we know whose side the chamber is on.
Have you heard or seen the ads? Let us know below.
