Big ad buy hits Reno voters
By: CNN Political Unit
(CNN) – A new ad running in Reno, Nevada highlights voters who say the state’s GOP Senate nominee, Sharron Angle, “speaks for me.”
The Susan B. Anthony List, a pro-life women’s group, and CitizenLink, a group affiliated with the conservative group Focus on the Family, are spending $200,000 to air the 30-second spot in the Reno and Las Vegas media markets.
“This campaign sheds light on how Nevadans see Sharron Angle – as someone who will speak for them instead of perpetuating Obama’s extreme agenda as Harry Reid has done. What a great contrast: freshness and authenticity versus good old boy opportunism,” SBA List President Marjorie Dannenfelser said in a statement.
A CNN/Time/Opinion Research Corporation poll released last week had Angle and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid in a statistical dead heat. Ten percent don’t approve of either candidate.
