Here is the one everyone is talking about.
The National Republican Congressional Committee’s new ad on Jim Esch entitled, “Jim Esch Has a History of Bad Judgment“.
Take a look.
Jim Esch has a history of bad judgment.Esch used bad judgment when he endangered our families by driving under the influence of alcohol, at over twice the legal limit. (Sound of sirens in background.)And now Esch’s bad judgment threatens our sick economy. (Sound of beeping heart monitor in the background.)Esch wants to raise Social Security taxes.And raise payroll taxes as our familes are struggling to make ends meet.Jim Esch’s bad judgment.It’s not only chronic, it’s dangerous. (Sound of heart monitor flatlining in background.)
And the NRCC has decided to come in with both barrels blazing.
No doubt the NRCC sees Esch’s DUI as something voters should know. Now you, reader of Leavenworth Street, are familiar with this part of Esch’s life because you read the blogs and the paper. But without this ad, many would not. The NRCC wants to be sure this portion of Esch’s career is planted in the voters’ heads.
Does this mean the NRCC thinks this race is close? Whether this ad indicates it or not, we know that they DO think this race is close. Then again, they are also viewing this from 2000 miles away in Washington. We
In any case be ready for more ads, from both sides, to come fast and furious.
(Of course what the NRCC should have pointed out is that the water bottle Jim is holding cost his campaign $6,500. Now THAT’s bad judgment…)
