It was an event built for a campaign commercial. Kathleen Kane will enter the final week of the Attorney General race with a positive spot that highlights her endorsement from former President Bill Clinton.
“She has handled more than three thousand cases. If you want somebody who’s both tough and smart, both somebody who’s got a steel spine and a caring heart, Kathleen Kane is your candidate.”
The footage comes from a rally Clinton held with Kane in Montgomery County on Thursday.
Sure it’s straightforward, but Bill Clinton is pretty popular among Democrats.
More interestingly, their final-week ads show where each campaign thinks it is. Murphy’s most recent spot was a broadside of attacks against Kane on a number of issues. That, plus the fact that Kane appears to be entering the final on a positive note, suggests that both campaigns see her as the frontrunner.
Kane’s campaign declined to comment on whether this was the last ad; both camps declined to comment about internal polling.
