TV ads in Georgia’s GOP Senate primary have taken a childish turn. Ads depicting his opponents as crying babies have helped businessman David Perdue take a lead in polls. Now Rep. Jack Kingston’s ad likens Perdue to an infant with a stinking diaper.
Club for Growth Action takes a newspaper article out of context to portray Republican Nebraska Senate candidate Sid Dinsdale as “really liberal” because he said “Obamacare has some good aspects.”
