(CNN) – Virginia residents are set to be bombarded Thursday with new television ads attacking both the state's gubernatorial candidates.
The Republican Governor's Association, via their offshoot political action committee in Virginia, released a 30-second spot that takes aim at Democratic candidate Creigh Deeds' fiscal policies, saying Deeds once pushed for a tax plan that would have increased taxes on gasoline by 34 percent.
"Creigh Deeds, pumping up spending, pumping up taxes, even in a bad economy," the ad's narrator states.
Meanwhile, the Deeds campaign went up with an ad Thursday targeting Republican Bob McDonnell's policies on abortion issues.
"Bob McDonnell introduced 35 bills to restrict a women's right to choose," the ad's narrator states. "He wants to outlaw abortion - even in cases of rape and incest."
