U.S. Chamber Targets NoVa Drivers

Anita Kumar

As we told you earlier this week, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce is airing radio and TV ads in the pricey Washington media market to target Northern Virginians stuck in traffic.

The hard-hitting ads accuse Democrat Creigh Deeds of having no plan for transportation, while Republican Bob McDonnell has proposed widening I-66 inside the Beltway and extending Metro to Dulles airport.

"Tell Creigh Deeds we need a real transportation plan now,'' a narrator says at the end.

The transportation TV ad -- as well as a second one airing in the rest of the state on the so-called federal card-check legislation -- are part of a significant ad buy by the chamber that began last week.

McDonnell and his backers, which include the Republican Governors Association, the NRA and the chamber, continue to significantly outspend Deeds and his supporters on advertising.

Check out the ads after the jump.

Here's the radio version:

And here's the TV version:

WoW, republicans trully did have a change of heart, since they can't call shots, actualy they can't call any shots anymore.
Change of heart could have an effect on voters eventualy and that would be bad for democrats. Eventualy!!!!! But not in 2010. The question is; can any politician keep his promise after 2010.
