Crossroads GPS has two new ads running in Virginia focused on Democratic Senate candidate Tim Kaine's liberal record. In one ad, the conservative super PAC knocks Kaine for supporting the budget sequestration plan, increasing government spending, and "higher taxes on middle class families"--tying all of these positions to Barack Obama, too. Watch the ad below:

The second Crossroads ad criticizes Kaine's support for cap and trade policies. "Tim Kaine's for cap and trade, and that would cost jobs," the voiceover says. Watch that ad below:

Kaine has a razor-thin lead over his Republican opponent, George Allen, according to the Real Clear Politics poll average.
