A Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee ad that appeared on the Internet this week attacks the record of “Bush and the GOP” on homeland security, but makes some factual stumbles.
Web video edits his remarks. He did NOT say the US is a bigger threat to world peace than North Korea or Iran.
Republican challenger John Spencer falsely claims she opposes the Patriot Act, which she voted for twice.
Montana Democrats and Sen. Burns contradict each other. Both are right, up to a point.
Ads thanking lawmakers for voting for Medicare Bill include four too many.
The Chamber of Commerce aired an ad to support 20 members of Congress for having “supported the Medicare Part D law, giving seniors a quality drug plan.” But four members were mistakenly included.
In his most recent ad, we find that Republican Senate candidate Pete Ricketts inaccurately uses citations from news reports to draw his own, more incendiary conclusions.
We find that Republican Senate candidate Bob Corker’s current ad misleads by falsely implying that he lowered taxes in Chattanooga when he was mayor.
Senate candidate Bob Corker accuses two rivals of voting to raise their own pay while in the House, but in fact Van Hilleary and Ed Bryant repeatedly voted against raises.
The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee began running ads attacking Republicans for accepting pay raises while opposing an increase in the federal minimum wage. The ads are accurate, but exaggerated.
