Virginia Senate Race

  1. Following their endorsement of former Sen. George Allen in the Virginia Senate race on Wednesday, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce aired a new ad attacking Allen’s opponent, Tim Kaine (D).

    The Washington Times described the ad:

    The Virginia ad says the “Kaine train” would “derail” Virginia’s economy with “big government policies,” and notes his support for President Obama’s healthcare reform.

    The expenditure [on this and other campaign ads] is unusual because it comes from a nonprofit group rather than a political committee, and it is by far the largest of its kind this election cycle.
