“He Fooled Me!” New Ad Questions McDonnell on Race


A new Democratic PAC is going on the air with a radio ad targeting Gov. Bob McDonnell. From TPM:

In the wake of Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell’s (R) botched Confederate History Month declaration, a new group of Democrats has gone on the air to tell African Americans in the state their new Governor is not the big-tent leader he promised to be. […]

The ad makes no bones about targeting the tentative ties to the black community McDonnell’s supporters claimed he forged during his all-moderate-all-the-time 2009 campaign.

Listen to the ad at the YouTube page of the semi-palindromically-named Americans for America.
