Crossroads GPS Working Overtime Against Kaine

September 11, 2012
The previous Crossroads GPS blitz in Virginia in mid-August featured the same two lines of attack as the new ads: One hit Kaine for raising taxes and cutting college funding, the other said he endorsed a plan that "puts defense spending at risk," and could cost the state jobs. A Crossroads GPS ad earlier in August focused on the tax hikes/education cut line of attack on Kaine. A July Crossroads GPS ad hit Kaine on the stimulus and "reckless spending." An April Crossroads GPS ad also brought up "reckless spending" but also tied Kaine to President Obama, who is also locked in a tight race in the state -- something we haven't seen in their more recent ad campaigns in Virginia. "Both presidential campaigns rightly suspended negative ads today," said Kaine in a release responding to the new ads. "It is a sad reflection of the divisiveness of our politics that outside groups like Crossroads GPS cannot set aside false partisan attacks even as our elected officials and citizens of all walks of life, political parties, and religious faiths join together to honor the dead, thank our first responders and service members, and celebrate the freedoms we enjoy as a nation." The latest Crossroads ads are the first to go up since Kaine began his own advertising campaign a few weeks ago. Meanwhile, GOP nominee George Allen is not currently airing ads.
