Tom White and Lee Terry have competing ads up right now. We have ‘em both here for you to view.
And Terry’s response:
Here’s the thing: This hasn’t exactly been a theme of Tom White’s all campaign long. It’s just sort of throw up there. “We need to have our annual senior-scare spot! Get a generic one from the DCCC!”
And then Terry whacks White with the point that White supports the law that cuts Medicare.
And last time we checked, these type of spots didn’t get Jim Esch over the hump either.
So we just chock this up to the sort of desperation mode the White camp is in. Nothing is sticking, so go to some old trope that everyone else has always used.
Honestly, we expected more and better from the White camp than this. Something original. Something hard-hitting and relevant. And at least consistent with the campaign they have been running.
Joe Jordan takes stock of last night’s debate between Terry and White, and calls it a clear win for Terry.
See his report here:
Did Tom White not know the story of him flying lobbyists across the state would not come up? Again, no response prepared? Brother.
