American Crossroads Postelection Ad

The Washington Examiner reports:

The 2010 campaign is over, but 2012 apparently isn’t far away.

Karl Rove’s super-PAC, American Crossroads, was out this week with an ad targeting recently-re-elected House Democrats, including Northern Virginia Rep. Gerry Connolly — who narrowly beat Republican Keith Fimian — over the Bush-era tax cuts.

“She’s back – Nancy Pelosi’s at it again, trying to raise taxes as our economy struggles,” the radio ad says. “And whose side is Congressman Gerry Connolly on? Will he side with Nancy Pelosi to raise job-killing taxes? Or with struggling families and small businesses that can create the jobs we need?”

The House ended up passing the tax-cut package hashed out by Republicans and President Obama. And Connolly, who represents Virginia’s wealthy 11th Congressional District and has supported a temporary extension of the Bush-era tax cuts for some time, was probably never going to vote against such a measure.
