NRCC Nevada Ad Blasts Marshall's Economic Record

July 28, 2011

The National Republican Congressional Committee's first ad in Nevada's 2nd District special election focuses on the economy, directly refuting Democrat Kate Marshall's claims she helped put the state on solid financial footing.

The ad, which begins airing Friday, comes two days after Marshall's first television ad touted her "Common Sense" approach in the treasurer's office, and claims Marshall "gambled away $50 million of your money on Wall Street," pointing to the state's investment in Lehman Brothers before it crashed, and 33 increase in office spending.

Charging that Nevada's economy became the worst in the nation under Marshall, the ad closes with a photo of President Obama with his arm around the Democratic state treasurer.

"Kate Marshall is directly responsible for losing $50 million of taxpayer money on a preventable Wall Street gamble and will only be an echo chamber for Harry Reid's job-killing agenda if elected to Congress," said NRCC spokesman Tyler Houlton.

As Hotline On Call reported earlier Thursday, the NRCC is the first outside group to wade into the television ad wars ahead of the September 13 special election between Marshall and former state GOP Chairman Mark Amodei. The roughly $250,000 ad buy on Reno television will last through August 11.
