The Emergency Committee for Israel targets Wisconsin Senate candidate Tammy Baldwin in its latest ad:
"The spot dubs her 'extreme,' and weak on defense. The group says it's airing for about 10 days, with it's biggest buy in any race this cycle, at $500,000," Maggie Haberman reports.
ECI adds, in a press release:
Today the Emergency Committee for Israel released "Extreme," a 30-second TV ad that highlights Wisconsin Senate candidate Tammy Baldwin's troubling foreign policy record. In a significant buy, the spot will air hundreds of times statewide over the next two weeks on cable and broadcast television, including during Green Bay Packers games.
Throughout her career in the House of Representatives, Baldwin has been nothing less than hostile to the U.S.-Israel alliance. She has accused Israel of war crimes, befriended anti-Israel groups, refused to sign bipartisan letters of support for Israel, and defended the libelous Goldstone Report.
ECI's executive director Noah Pollak said: "Over the past decade, Tammy Baldwin has established a foreign policy record of extremism. Yet now that she's running for Senate, she's attempting to obscure that record -- in fact, her campaign website doesn't even include a foreign policy section. Since she doesn't want to tell the voters where she stands, we will."
The National Republican Senatorial Committee released this web ad last night, placing Senate candidate Tammy Baldwin on the losing side of the Wisconsin recall effort:
As the spot shows, Baldwin was an early and big supporter of the recall election. And, of course, last night's results show Baldwin's belief on this issue is not in line with the majority of Wisconsinites, who reelected Republican Scott Walker by 7 percentage point margin.
