Ad Watch: Labrador, NRCC launch new campaign ads in 1st CD race

GOP congressional hopeful Raul Labrador has launched a new ad today, a spot entitled "Family" that doesn't mention his opponent and shows lots of pictures of his wife and kids. You can watch it here; Labrador's campaign says it will begin airing this weekend. In the ad, Labrador says, “Becca and I want for our family what you want for yours.  A future without big government watching and taxing our every move.”

Meanwhile, the National Republican Congressional Committee has launched a new ad against incumbent Congressman Walt Minnick in Idaho, showing what appears to be the view from behind the wheel of an out-of-control speeding car. The ad paints Minnick as a clone of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, citing such Democratic proposals as "national energy tax, government takeover of health care," even though Minnick voted against both the cap-and-trade energy bill and the health care reform bill. "Put the brakes on Pelosi. Replace Walt Minnick," the NRCC ad says; you can watch it here.
