American Crossroads, a conservative outside organization, is launching television ads today that take Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) to task for the economic stimulus package passed by Congress last year.
"With Nevada in economic free fall, Harry Reid brags about his taxpayer-funded $787 billion bailout," says the ad narrator. The ad goes on to note that 180,000 Nevadans are out of work and home values have "plummeted." The ad ends with an image of Reid, President Obama and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.).
The ad, which will run for a week and cost the group $120,000, is the first television commercial sponsored by American Crossroads since it was formed in the spring. According to its most recent filing, the group has raised a little over $1 million but has significantly broader financial aspirations.
