A conservative group
is targeting Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, running ads attacking him for his lead role in striking the fiscal cliff deal that they say “betrayed conservative principles.”
ForAmerica, headed by Brent Bozell, began running web ads a picture of McConnell between President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden, McConnell’s Democratic counterpart in the negotiations. The text asks “Mitch McConnell: Whose side are you on?”
The group is putting five figures behind the buy, which, according to the ForAmerica release, will run on FoxNews.com, the Drudge Report, The Daily Caller and Facebook in Kentucky and Washington, D.C.
