The ad is set to air in the Philly and Harrisburg regions, and its buy is estimated to be in the low six-figures. Listen to it here.
If you’ve seen the television ad released by the RSLC, you’ll notice that the pro-GOP group keeps hammering away at the same narrative: Kane is dishonest about her record and has a sloppy track record.
“How can Pennsylvania trust Kathleen Kane,” the ad’s narrator asks, “when she’s not been honest about her experience, lets others take responsibility for weak plea deals, and failed miserably in one of her only trials?”
The ad reiterated a claim that has been so controversial in the past week: Kane had “gone soft” on a rapist during one of her trials. A similar claim had been widely rebuked by Kane’s former colleagues and even the victim’s father.
Freed’s campaign has not responded to a request for comment on the radio ad.
The PA Dems have also sounded off on the ads released by the RSLC, and calls upon Kane’s opponent David Freed in a statement to stand up against the “false claims”.
“Despite continual requests for comment, David Freed remains silent on this issue. His inaction speaks volumes as to what kind of Attorney General’s Office he would run in our state if his campaign for Pennsylvania’s top law enforcement job doesn’t value the truth.”
