Super PAC Pitching Anti-McAuliffe Ad During World Series

Virginia baseball fans will see another salvo in a national super PAC's fight against Virginia gubernatorial candidate Terry McAuliffe during Monday's World Series game, when the group launches a 30-second ad linking the Democratic candidate to Obamacare.

The Fight for Tomorrow PAC will air its newest advertisement, "Obamacare Fiasco" as part of its campaign to support Republican contender Ken Cuccinelli.

Story continues below video.

According to the PAC, the first wave of the ad's run will be shown on all Virginia Fox affiliates during game three of the World Series Monday night in the following Virginia media markets: DC (northern Virginia), Richmond, Bristol (Tri Cities), Portsmouth (Norfolk / Virginia Beach) and Harrisonburg.

“Terry McAuliffe is Obamacare’s biggest backer," the advertisement says. "Defeat Terry McAuliffe and elect Ken Cuccinelli who told the truth about Obamacare from the start."

PAC Executive Director Matt Mackowiak said Saturday that McAuliffe has said he wants to expand Obamacare in Virginia, while "every day we see more bad news about Obamacare's disastrous effects on Virginians, with higher premiums, higher deductibles, forced reductions of hours worked and a $600 million website that after three years of being built is a total failure."

Mackowiak said the upcoming gubernatorial election will eventually be seen "as a referendum on the Obamacare disaster."

Fight for Tomorrow plans operations in other states in 2014, but its short-term goal is the election of Ken Cuccinelli over Terry McAuliffe," Mackowiak said in September. "Our long-term goal is to play in several states with key U.S. Senate races in '14 and counter the left's money and smear tactics."

Mackowiak, is a former Department of Homeland Security official under George W. Bush and press secretary for former Republican Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison of Texas.

Cuccinelli said in the Oct. 19 GOP weekly address that he was the first attorney general in the United States to challenge Obamacare in the federal courts, and that he wants to keep challenging the law because it is one that is hurting his state and the nation.
