Good morning politicos, here’s the buzz. Lots of news today! Republicans reach a budget deal; what’s being said in the three latest ad buys (two anti-Obama and one anti-Romney); Smith slams Casey for an anti-coal vote; and see what Critz is doing to keep his lead in the polls.
Today Sen. Casey voted against a resolution preventing the EPA from enacting new regulations on pollution and air safety. Its critics say the EPA rules will slow down the coal industry and make costs go up, but Casey said he voted his conscience to put health before profit.
Which makes Mitt Romney least qualified to serve as Commander in Chief: that he pronounced ‘Wawa’ with an ‘S’, that he expressed playful amazement at the touch screen ordering system, or that he ordered a meatball sub rather than a hoagie? Here’s a rundown of the ridiculous coverage of Wawa-gate.
The pro-Romney super PAC Restore Our Future and the Tea Party-affiliated Americans for Prosperity both launched TV ads in PA Wednesday. The highly similar spots hammer President Obama over his recent comment that, “the private sector is doing fine.” They’ll spend a combined $1.8 million in PA.
The Obama campaign has released another ad today complementing the message that Romney Economics does not work. The ad deals with Romney’s record of raising taxes and fees on the middle class as Governor.
