SuperPAC to spend $2.5 million more to ‘bury Duckworth’ in negative ads

Source: Chicago Sun-Times

The plan is to “bury” Democrat Tammy Duckworth in a sea of negative ads.

The means: an additional $2.5 million.

A conservative SuperPAC touting Duckworth rival Joe Walsh is preparing to dump an extra $2.5 million into the heated 8th Congressional District race — on top of $2 million it has already spent, a source familiar with the plan told the Chicago Sun-Times. The idea is to “bury Duckworth,” the source said.

The revelation comes a day after Duckworth reported that she personally raised more than five times as much as Walsh did in the last quarter — about $1.5 million to the Republican’s $251,000. That means that the Now or Never SuperPAC spent eight times what Walsh was able to raise himself in the last quarter.

With corporate SuperPACs, who needs constituents. Just tap into the U.S. Chamber of Commerce or a billionaires SuperPAC and you can run a competitive race.

2. Walsh won't be getting re-elected.

 

Tammy is proving that even without legs, it's possible to throughly kick someone's ass.

4. It was once said that negative ads turned votefs off the ones who made them, may it be so here.

Duckworth deserves that seat, not Walsh.

5. Those negative ads will make him look like even more of an asshole

Can they possibly make him more negative?

A complete waste of money. Walsh is gonna get slaughtered. But I encourage them to spend into oblivion.

7. Americans seem peculiarly swayed by obviously partisan ads.

Mittens didn't get an upswing because of his debate performance it was all those ads he put out right after the debate that gave him a boost in the polls.

Americans seem to respond to ads more so than most populations.
