The conservative front group For America intends to run web ads in Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell's home state of Kentucky tying McConnell to President Obama and Vice President Biden.

The anti-McConnell web ads, which will be distributed through Google display ads and Facebook in McConnell's home state of Kentucky, and they will also be featured on the conservative websites The Daily Caller and Drudge Report, read "Mitch McConnell: Whose side are you on?" with the image of McConnell wedged between images of President Obama and Vice President Biden.

McConnell is being targeted by For America for negotiating the deal to retroactively advert the so-called "fiscal cliff". Brent Bozell, president of For America, said this:

It is a statement to make it emphatically clear that what the minority leader did was 100 percent unacceptable. Conservatives are going to hold him responsible for this.
No Republican has announced his or her intention to mount a primary challenge to McConnell at this time. Last month, Public Policy Polling found McConnell leading a generic "more conservative" primary challenger 50%-35%, however, that was before McConnell negotiated the fiscal cliff deal with Biden.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
