Anti-Hagel group targets Sen. Mark Pryor

  • Sen. Mark Pryor: a target of out-of-state group

Just when you thought you were safe from out-of-state attack ads, here comes a new group, Americans for a Strong Defense (no relation, as far as we know, to those Americans that are for prosperity) with a big ad buy opposing the nomination of Chuck Hagel to Secretary of Defense.

The group, run by former Romney campaign staff, is running the ad in five states, including Arkansas. I caught it last night and initially thought it was a preview for a horror movie. Apparently some scary stuff is going to happen if you don’t call Sen. Mark Pryor and tell him to vote No on Hagel.

In addition to Arkansas, the supposedly bipartisan group is targeting senators in Alaska, Colorado, Louisiana and North Carolina. All of their targets are Democrats, so this may be as much about putting the heat on Democratic incumbents in unsafe seats as it is about Hagel.

Americans for a Strong Defense is a 501(c)(4) organization, which means they don't have to disclose their donors.

    When President-elect Trump announced he would, in a few days, force Congress to enact comprehensive health insurance for everyone, poor or rich, that would provide better and cheaper care than they've ever gotten, you had to wonder whether this guy is a miracle worker or a fool.
