Making Sense of the Missouri GOP Ad War

July 9: Steelman attacks Brunner for a contribution his family foundation made: "$10,000 to an extreme animal rights groups that was founded to give farm animals rights," says the announcer. The ad also notes that Brunner is from St. Louis. June 26: Brunner takes on both his GOP opponents. So, what to conclude from all the cross-fire? The self-funding Brunner has the money to attack both his opponents -- and he is concerned enough about both to do so. Steelman is more worried about Brunner than Akin. Akin hasn't directly attacked either of his opponents, opting to defend himself against attacks and otherwise stay above the fray. McCaskill and Democrats prefer to face Akin. Stay tuned -- this race is unlikely to get nicer in the final week.
