Republican Senate candidate Denny Rehberg of Montana has a new television spot out taking on his opponent, first-term Democrat Jon Tester, for bringing back home "Washington bologna."

"Tester votes 95 percent of the time with Obama," says one man in fishing waders. "Jon Tester voted for Obama's job-killing taxes," says another man. Watch the ad below:

One line of attack missing from this ad (and Rehberg's last TV ad) is that Tester voted, like all his fellow Democrats in the Senate, for President Obama's health care law. A recent ad from super PAC Crossroads GPS did hit Tester for supporting Obamacare.
