First on CNN: First major TV ad on VA scandal

Washington (CNN) -- The Veterans Affairs scandal's been a major issue on the campaign trail the past couple of weeks. Now it's front and center in the campaign ad wars.

Crossroads GPS, the non-profit sister organization to American Crossroads, a leading pro-GOP outside group which was co-founded and steered by Karl Rove, says that starting Wednesday it will start running a television commercial in Alaska that's critical of Sen. Mark Begich over his reaction to the growing controversy, which was first reported by CNN six months ago.

GOP taints 2014 Dems with Obama healthcare pledge

Washington (CNN) - The controversy over President Barack Obama's dialing back of his famous healthcare pledge is playing out immediately in real time on the campaign trail.

American Crossroads, a leading pro-GOP super PAC that was co-founded and is steered by Karl Rove, announced Tuesday that it's going up with paid web ads that target three Democratic Senators who face tough re-election bids next year. The spots tie the lawmakers to the President's claim that Americans could keep current health insurance under the Affordable Care Act if they preferred it.

American Crossroads is the pro-Republican super PAC co-founded by Karl Rove. They said they were spending $10,000 to place the ad online.
