GOP desperation watch: goin' negative
Of course, the big question is: will it work? I doubt it. And I think Democrats could and should hit twice as hard. Republicans: the party of Katrina, Iraq, and Bush. Want more of that?
Republicans are planning to spend the vast majority of their sizable financial war chest over the final 60 days of the campaign attacking Democratic House and Senate candidates over personal issues and local controversies, GOP officials said.
The National Republican Congressional Committee, which this year dispatched a half-dozen operatives to comb through tax, court and other records looking for damaging information on Democratic candidates, plans to spend more than 90 percent of its $50 million-plus advertising budget on what officials described as negative ads.
