New 30 second ads out in the #NE02 race.
See Lee Terry’s spot here:
This is an accurate spot regarding Ashford’s position.
Will it make the difference at this point?
This is the argument most Republican Senate candidates with a tough race — like in Iowa and Kansas — are making. If the Democrat wins, the Congress hangs in the balance.
It is a much harder sell for Terry in the House race, where that national dynamic isn’t really being sold.
And Brad Ashford comes out strong on the issues against Lee Terry, just like the OWH and his other supporters point out.
Oh, wait. No he doesn’t.
He again says, “Dang straight.”
Here is the DCCC’s spot…
And here is the Ashford camp’s spot, with Lincoln’s Kathy Campbell, from Jeff Fortenberry’s district, telling the people of the 2nd District that she doesn’t like Lee Terry.
What could be more convincing?
Our guess is that he was waiting for some actual polling evidence to show what most believe — that Ashford holds the current polling lead. And, as we noted, even more than the straight up, “Who will you vote for?” question is the “Favorable/Unfavorable”, where Lee Terry is tanking.
It is THAT rating that gets the blood flowing for most pollsters.
No doubt it got Rothenberg to lean to Ashford.
Dave Domina was on Sean Hannity’s radio show yesterday.
First, let us give some props to big Dave for going on this show. He knew he was going into a buzzsaw, but figured it was a national audience, so why not. And Dave thinks he is smarter than everyone else, so he plowed right in.
We did chuckle a bit when Domina was exasperated to announce that he voted for Barack Obama twice, and gives him a 7 out of 10 rating as a President. Domina was almost angry that he had to say it.
And Domina extensively defended his record of taking a former Nazi as a client.
He also staunchly defended his TV ad where a comatose person was wearing a bright green Domina for Senate t-shirt.
And he laughed at the idea that U.S. borders needed to be further secured.
Hannity also needled Domina with the current poll numbers that show him 20 points down. Dave said they were going to shock the world on Tuesday.
And that’s fine (and delusional), but you gotta come up with a better line than that. Domina’s such an evidence driven guy, he could have pointed out some other times polls were wrong, that this poll was off, that Democrats have a voting lead or some such. He came off particularly weak there.
And then Hannity got into making bets with him, where he could have laughed it off a little, and gone to whatever strong suit he thinks he has. Instead he got angry and responded, “Mr. Hannity I wont’ take part in illegal wagering on your program and I decline.”
Mmm OK Dave. Party on.
