Crossroads GPS has released a new TV ad attacking former Nebraska Democratic Sen. Bob Kerrey, who is trying to return to the Senate in a race against GOP state Sen. Deb Fischer.
The ad attacks Kerrey for supporting the bank bailout while he was a board member at a company that sought bailout money.
“Kerrey’s company tried a bureaucratic ploy to get bailout funds, but the ploy failed,” the ad says. “These schemes were called a disturbing trend by an independent watchdog, violating the spirit of the law to jump on the gravy train. For bailout Bob Kerrey, it’s Wall Street ways, not Nebraska values.”
Crossroads is spending $260,000 to broadcast the ad across the state on cable TV, Politico
reports. In the end, it may not even be necessary. A May 16 poll from Rasmussen Reports shows Fischer in the lead, 56 percent to 38 percent.
