Lugar Attacks ObamaCare in New Ad

March 26, 2012

Sen. Richard Lugar, R-Ind., is launching a new TV and radio ad buy timed to coincide with the beginning of the Supreme Court hearing arguments about President Obama's health care.

"Obamacare is wrong for America and I believe it's unconstitutional. That's why before it had even passed Congress, I urged Indiana's attorney general to launch a legal challenge against Obamacare," Lugar says in the TV ad.

As Republicans who want to unseat him consistently point to Lugar's support for Obama, the ad is an attempt by the senator to distance himself from the president.

A Democratic source tracking the buy says the Lugar campaign is spending roughly $110,000 to air the ad statewide (including $23,000 on radio).

For perspective, that's a lot more than the $35,000 being spent by the pro-Lugar Indiana Values super PAC is spending on its ad against Treasurer Richard Mourdock, but less than the $274,000 being spent by the Club on its own spot that hits Lugar.
