Crossroads GPS, a Karl Rove run conservative superPAC, allegedly is taking a break from running commercials attacking President Barack Obama. Instead, they are taking on a new target — Democratic Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren.
According to an email sent out by the Warren campaign, the action group has planned an ad buy worth hundreds of thousands of dollars, all focused on helping ensure that Warren doesn’t win the Massachusetts senate seat. The ad links Elizabeth Warren to the “Occupy Wall Street” movement, and says she associates with “extreme left-wing protesters.”
But Warren isn’t the only one being targeted by outside interest groups. Incumbent Republican Senator Scott Brown is also feeling the heat, with the League of Conservation Voters running a new ad pointing out the Senator’s donations from Big Oil, and asking him to stop voting for tax breaks to support the industry.
