After training its sights on philanthropist Michelle Nunn (D) with a recent TV ad, the super PAC Ending Spending is going after Rep. Phil Gingrey (R-11) in a new ad and “has bought $1.3 million in ad time between now and the May 20 primary.” The ad “accuses Gingrey … of such Washington sins as requesting earmarks and voting to increase the debt limit” and complaining about the congressional salary. (Atlanta Journal-Constitution) (ad at link) The ads represent an effort to keep the well-funded but sometimes controversial Gingrey out of a primary runoff.
That ad comes just as Gingrey releases another TV ad in which he wears his lab coat and stethescope and touts his votes to repeal Obamacare. (release)
