BIAW shifting ad strategy to TV…

Gov. Chris Gregoire's campaign says that the Building Industry Association of Washington, fresh from a month of radio ads, appears poised to launch new anti-Gregoire ads on TV. The group's been checking media-buy records at TV stations.

"It is no surprise that Republican Dino Rossi's biggest special interest friends would sign a blank check to try and buy the Governor's mansion," said Gregoire campaign spokesman Aaron Toso.

Another PAC, calling itself Evergreen Progress, appears to be mounting a similar anti-Rossi effort. The group has raised more than $1 million, much of it from public-employee- and other unions, as well as from the Democratic Governors' Association.
