(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."
I read McDonnell's college thesis.
Sounds like he has pretty much the same core beliefs as the Taliban.
The adds are very truthful....
You should not vote for either of them.
You can rest assured that the republican ad will be filled with lies and hate.
They have turned into complete fools, and are a disgrace to the united states of america.
No MAN should be able to tell women what they can and cannot do with their health and well-being – including the difficult choice of abortion.
In case the nutjobs have missed this detail – ABORTION IS LEGAL AND IS THE LAW OF THE LAND. Get over it and go preach your fake values to someone else. If you care so much about unwanted babies – tell me how many have you adopted???? Hypocrites to the end!
Cue the banjos!
The republicans deceive, lie, and just outright want power for their own personal gains.
VOTE THE REPUBLICANTS OUT.
Funny...... more lies from the GOP. What else you got?
Ya know, if these idiots would just stand up for what they believe in, and quit their juvenile mud slinging, they might earn some respect.
CNN, where is your coverage about the arrest warrants for ACORN workers? Not to mention the hidden camera tapes of ACORN workers encouraging prostitution?
McDonnell = Far right ideology
Deeds = Moderate
The decision is clear.
DEEDS is corrupt. It's been proven numerous times.
I guess DEEDS doesnt' realize people have had enough of corruption and MORE TAXES.
If you can't afford these GOVT programs, you have to cut spending somewhere. Raising Taxes and Fees is no longer acceptable because we are not going to stand for it.
Yep another politician who publicly changes his opinions to try and win an election. No way, No how will I vote for Bob McDonnell.
Thank goodness for TiVO... I can fast forward through these stupid ads.
What's the distinction between an "attack ad" and a broadcast of the opposition's past political actions? Neither of these sound like attacks to me. This polarization needs to stop!
It is straight up good vs. evil here.
The good people of most of Virginia Vs the evil hateful DC suburb lib-bots in the Northern part.
I wouldn't want McDonnell to be my garbage sweeper after the statements he made....they always try to justify their common views as youthful indiscretions. But a person doesn't change that much. He still like most republicans think women should be in the home barefooted and pregnant. That is the republican mentality and it will always be. This guy deserves to be sent to cheney's undisclosed location til he is old and grayer than me.
McDonnell, as a representative of the extreme, and probably, religious right is definitely archaic and living in the Dark Ages.
The richest people in America, pay for such devious ads.
One by one, state by state, wherever there is a democrat. these
are the same ads they used on who should have been our Pres.,
Just think how much better off our country would have been?????
american democracy is who can tell the biggest lie like that canadian women health care ad her condition was not life threatning could have waited in line but chose to go to america the doctors charged her 100,000 dollars wonder who payed that bill for her
