Fight for Tomorrow, a new national Super PAC based in Texas and developed by several conservatives in Virginia and in other states, is launching an advertising campaign intended to impact the Virginia Governor’s race.
Our first ad, “Don't Let Them Detroit Virginia,” is running on TV in Richmond and northern Virginia in the Washington, DC market and in the "A" section of today's Washington Post.
Like-minded individuals can help us run this ad in Virginia. While our focus is on this critical contest for the next two months, our interest is wider than simply one state.
A GOP “wave” in 2014 to ensure Republican control of the U.S. Senate and the Congress is there for the taking, but it won’t happen until the Democratic Party leadership and its allies are confronted over the one tactic they have been using to hold onto power, especially in the U.S. Senate. Avoiding any “liberal” vs. “conservative” comparisons is paramount for Democrats, and they have done this by making elections ugly mano a mano contests. Their tactic: isolate the Republican with a furious barrage of attack ads sponsored by mega-rich environmentalists, abortion extremists, or smear groups funded by anti-American financier George Soros.
This is only the latest iteration of a tactic first recommended by Clinton-Obama hero, Saul Alinsky. It has been most shrewdly employed in recent years by two principal Democratic players – New York Senator Chuck Schumer, who has raised much of the Wall Street and Hollywood money, and David Axelrod, who employs the Obama echo chamber by working the phones with the closet Obama partisans masquerading as news executives and editors in the elite media.
On display all year in Kentucky against Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell for speaking out against the administration’s attempts to silence dissent, the attacks are focused most recently on the GOP candidate in the Virginia governor’s race, Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli. Coordinated by the national Democratic Party, the Obama White House, and the Clintons, as Clinton protégé and professional “Friend of Bill” Terry McAuliffe is Cuccinelli’s opponent. Democrats believe turning Virginia from red to blue would be just the sort of demoralization needed to slow down a GOP “wave.” They hunger for the headline “Conservative Disaster in Virginia.”
