New Steelman Ad Hits Brunner, Highlights Palin Endorsement

Missouri Senate candidate Sarah Steelman manages to cram an attack on GOP opponent John Brunner, her Sarah Palin endorsement, and her stand against bankers investing Missouri money with terrorists into her latest 30-second commercial.

The ad begins with the Brunner criticisms. "When asked, John Brunner couldn't name one popular program he would cut," says the narrator. "Out of the $3.8 trillion budget, nothing?"

The spot then cuts to Steelman, who speaks as a banner proclaiming "endorsed by Sarah Palin" flashes across the screen. Steelman says she "took on Wall Street bankers who were investing Missouri tax dollars with terrorists," and that she'll work to balance the budget as senator.

The ad war is in full swing in the Show Me state, with the GOP primary on August 7. Earlier today, Brunner released two ads, including one hitting Rep. Todd Akin, the third Republican in the race.

Steelman has focused her fire on Brunner, while Brunner has alternated between hitting Akin and Steelman in his commercials.
