4. Kentucky 6th District GOP nominee Andy Barr: Barr hits Democratic Rep. Ben Chandler in a Halloween-themed ad as "scary." "I wanted to be something really scary for Halloween this year," says a boy in the ad. "So I decided to be congressman Ben Chandler. I saw him on TV trying to scare old people. Like my grandma! And then Chandler was picking on coal miners." The ad shows a child trick-or-treating in a Chandler mask, terrifying people as he goes.
ram> 5. Sen. Claire McCaskill, D-Mo.: And finally, one from a Senate race. McCaskill's latest spot, which returns to GOP Rep. Todd Akin's comments on "legitimate" rape, isn't overtly Halloween-y, but it opens with a subtle nod to the holiday -- a woman saying, "Todd Akin is scary."
