The Club For Growth is launching its first TV/radio ad campaign against Nebraska Republican Attorney General Jon Bruning, hitting the Senate GOP frontrunner over his record on spending.
"On spending, Bruning praised the Obama stimulus program," says the narrator of the TV ad. "He nearly doubled his own office budget, increasing spending at a faster rate than Congress."
The Club, which is backing Republican state Treasurer Don Stenberg in the race, would not comment on the buy other than to say that it is "substantial."
A Bruning internal poll conducted by the Tarrance Group poll last month during the two days before the Club endorsed Stenberg showed the attorney general leading the treasurer 52 percent to 19 percent.
