A pan-Eco group has launched an attack on various Republicans across Congress, and have included Representative Lee Terry in their sights.
See the spot here:
Note that “Clean Energy Works” PR contact, Josh Dorner, is also the PR contact at the Sierra Club. They support John Kerrey and the whole Cap & Trade scheme.
Don’t you just love these generic spots? One size fits all!
But it’s funny that this invisible group called “Bold Nebraska” that local Dems haven’t even heard of, is supposed to convince you that Terry is at the mercy of “Big Oil!”. (By the way, cute how everything “Big!” is the epitome of evil: Big Oil! Big Tobacco! Big Pharma! Big Boy! Give us break already, lefties.)
Just so all you politicos out there are aware: the whole “your Congressman has been bought and sold by special interests” campaign plan NEVER works. Voters know that pols get money from special interests. Lefties give money to Dems and conservatives give money to GOPers. If voters don’t like how their rep votes, they’ll get rid of him or her. Who gives the pol cash doesn’t concern them much.
Anyway, there’s volley one from the Tom White camp. Good luck with all that.
[The OWH’s Robynn Tysver notes that while this ad pushed the fact that Terry voted against Cap & Trade, Terry’s opponent Tom White is against Cap & Trade as well. So…um…]
And on the 2nd District note, we’ll toss out that former 2nd District Dem candidate Richard Carter is a co-Chair of Lee Terry’s re-eelction campaign.
You’ll remember that after losing to Jim Esch in 2008, Carter joined the Terry campaign and became the leader of Terry’s “Truth Squad”.
Local Dems are still beside themselves on this one.
And we were hoping to see the latest Nebraska Watchdog story on how Tom White would have voted on the House Health Care bill.
You’ll remember that Lee Terry voted “Nay”.
One would think that it would be helpful to 2nd District voters to know how White would have voted on the biggest issue of the day. You know, before the dust settles and he can see where the safest place to hide is.
Maybe Joe Jordan asked him and he’s waiting to spring it on us.
But we won’t, you know, hold our breath waiting for state Senator White.
