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.
