NRSC Launches New Youtube Ad on Casey
“Bob Casey posed as a moderate to get elected, but he’s shown his true, liberal colors since coming to Washington. Casey sold out Pennsylvanians years ago when he cozied up to the liberal special interest groups and anti-gun lobbyists who fund his campaign,” NRSC spokesman Bob Salera said.
The ad will run on Youtube until the end of September, targeted at likely midterm voters.
“The 2006 Bob Casey is gone. The new Bob Casey, just another Washington liberal,” the ad says.
These types of ads usually do not have large amounts of money behind them, and are used mainly to gain earned media coverage, and to engage with the base outside of the normal election timeline.
Update: The Pennsylvania Democratic Party responded to the ad, defending Casey’s positions as inline with Pennsylvania’s.
“All these misleading attacks show is how desperate D.C. special interests are to stop Bob Casey because they know he fights for the middle class, not them. Unfortunately for Washington Republicans, Pennsylvanians across the commonwealth know Bob Casey has spent his career delivering results for workers, families, and seniors,” Pa. Dems spokesman Max Steele said in an email.
