New TV Ad for Cain: ‘A High-Tech Lynching’


A pugnacious new ad from the Cain team:

The ad explicitly compares Cain and his recent controversy to Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas.

I am told the plan is to get on TV in Iowa next week with it and also drop about a million calls into Iowa and Nevada starting tomorrow with the same message.

This is from Americans for Herman Cain, which has “established a non-connected political committee that is established and registered with the Federal Election Commission. The committee supports the Federal candidacy of Herman Cain for President and is not a separate segregated fund; a party committee; nor is the committee authorized by any candidate or candidate committee. Paid for by 9-9-9 Fund. UNLIMITED contributions from either personal or corporate funds are acceptable.”
