The general election has officially begun.
Just three days after Katie McGinty won the Senate Democratic nomination, Pat Toomey is up with a TV ad attacking her.
“In state government, Katie McGinty helped steer millions of tax dollars to benefit corporations,” the narrator begins. “Those corporations later hired her. Some closed their plants, killing Pennsylvania jobs. But McGinty? She still got paid.”
“This outrageous scam is known as the revolving door, and McGinty is ranked as Pennsylvania’s top abuser,” the narrator continues as the commercial shows McGinty walking through an actual revolving door. “Katie McGinty makes government work for her, not for us.”
The thirty-second spot, titled “Door, is especially clever because it uses a line of attack (using government service to benefit oneself at the expense of others) that Democrats frequently employ against Republicans.
This commercial was released the same day as a similar anti-Toomey ad from AFSCME hit the airwaves.
The general election will take place on November 8th.
