The NRCC is out with a new TV ad against state Rep. Trent Van Haaften (D) (YouTube, 10/11).
ANNCR: "If Trent Van Haaften gets to Congress he'll fit right in, because he already has their bad habits. Van Haaften received the second-most gifts from lobbyists among all state legislators. Accepted tickets to an Obama inaugural ball paid for by a corporation. And then introduced a bill to benefit that very company. And Van Haaften voted to nearly double his salary. Trent Van Haaften and this Congress. Perfect together. The National Republican Congressional Committee is responsible for the content of this advertising."
