Tester Torches Rehberg on Firefighters

On Friday, Tester's campaign, the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee, and Majority PAC all went up with new television ads attacking Rehberg for suing the Billings fire department over a fire at his ranch. And for good measure, the DSCC followed up Monday with a second ad hammering on the same topic. While the ad race hadn't previously paid much attention to the lawsuit, it makes sense for Tester and the Democrats to try to keep the focus on local issues and on Rehberg's character during the home stretch. The Republican has repeatedly tied his opponent to President Obama in a state where Mitt Romney is expected to win easily next month. The Montana contest remains one of the closest Senate races in the country.
