Former Sen. George Allen (R-Va.) launched two television ads targeting women and independents on Thursday, as his race with former Gov. Tim Kaine (D) heats up.
Allen’s ads follow one from President Obama that aired this week in Virginia, which also focused on women.
Earlier in May a poll conducted by the Washington Post showed Kaine held a seven-point lead among women voters. In another ABC News/Washington Post poll conducted in May, Obama also held a seven-point advantage with women over Romney.
