A super PAC affiliated with Karl Rove is launching more than a million dollars worth of attack ads against Ohio' Democratic Sen. Sherrod Brown.

Crossroads GPS announced today it is buying broadcast and cable TV ads that accuse Brown of backing failed economics and  tax increases, and criticizing his support of the Affordable Care Act.

It' part of some $16 million spent so far on ads attacking Brown by super PACs who support his GOP challenger, Josh Mandel.

Legally, there can be no coordination between the super PACs and Mandel' campaign. And Mandel insists there is none and that he' running an 80 percent positive campaign.

Mandel says his campaign is the positive one

 “I think one of the reasons we’re tied in the polls is because Sherrod Brown is running negative campaign about pessimism and division and trying to tear me down, while we’re running a positive energetic campaign about change in Washington.  And I think voters are pretty tired of hearing Sherrod Brown whine about this and that. I think it's time for Sherrod Brown to put his big boy pants on. If he wants to run for Senate, he should stop whining and tell people what he stands for.”

The latest results from Public Policy Polling today show Brown with an eight-point edge over Mandel. But other polls show the race is within less than a single percentage point.

Brown’s campaign has raised about $4 million more than Mandel’s. And outside groups backing Brown have spent another roughly $4 million on ads targeting Mandel.

"Crossroads GPS announced today it is buying broadcast and cable TV ads that accuse Brown of backing failed economics and tax increases, and criticizing his support of the Affordable Care Act." - all they have to say is Brown is a Obama twin; - hopefully they do.
Agree, Brown, and Obama should grow up - "I think voters are pretty tired of hearing Sherrod Brown whine about this and that. I think it's time for Sherrod Brown to put his big boy pants on. If he wants to run for Senate, he should stop whining and tell people what he stands for.”
Yeah, tell America why we should be remade into a socialistic totalitarian ruled nanny state.
