Another Democrat On The Attack

With all the usual fearmongering and distortion done once again by the Republicans this year, it's high time for Democratic candidates to go on the attack.

Jerry Brown, mayor of Oakland and former California Governor, is getting back into statewide politics by running for Attorney General this year. The Republican candidate, Chuck Poochigian, is pretty much what you expect and the Brown campaign is making good use of it in its new advertising campaign which has just started.

There are four different ads so far. You can view them all here and the most noticeable and stinging one below:

Poochigian's response in the LA Times was that for Brown to label him an extremist is "offensive, pathetic and deceptive". Wow, three adjectives. I guess, the ads must be true then...

Help Jerry win! Contribute!
