American Action Network Hits Mourdock With Second TV Ad

April 25, 2012

The American Action Network is up with a second TV ad hitting Indiana Treasurer Richard Mourdock. The 30-second spot casts Mourdock as a risky selection who is reckless with taxpayer money.

"Mourdock bet on bailouts and big government and used taxpayer money as a hedge," the narrator of the ad says. "Reckless with our money a risk we can't afford. Vote against Richard Mourdock."

The ad will run on broadcast television in Indianapolis as part of the group's $600,000 buy there. It's part of an effort from allies of Sen. Richard Lugar to cast doubt about Mourdock's readiness for the Senate in the closing days of the race. Allies of Mourdock -- most notably the Club For Growth -- have been attacking Lugar.

With less than two weeks to go until the primary, Mourdock and Lugar are running in what appears to be very a close race. A recent Mourdock internal poll showed the race to be a statistical tie.
