Anti-McCain Ad
(2008-06-17)
(wgvu) - A major labor union and the liberal
organization MoveOn.org are joining forces to air a provocative new
ad in Michigan portraying John McCain's Iraq policy as a prolonged
presence that would involve a new generation of Americans.
The ad is paid for by the American Federation of State, County
and Municipal Employees and by MoveOn.org.
It represents an expansion by Democratic-leaning groups of a
campaign against McCain. It also targets McCain's public
credibility on national security issues.
The ad will begin airing nationally tomorrow on CNN and MSNBC,
and in Ohio, Michigan and Wisconsin markets.
The Republican National Committee says the country needs a
president who listens to his commanders, not partisan groups like
MoveOn.org.
In the ad, an actress with an infant child speaks as if she were
addressing McCain, the likely Republican presidential nominee.
