NextGen: Hey, Our Attack Ad Is ‘Mostly True’!

by Jim Geraghty

Liberal billionaire Tom Steyer’s environmental group, NextGen Climate Action Committee, ran a nasty ad against GOP Senate candidate Joni Ernst out in Iowa. PolitiFact rates the “ad” false and one of the sources cited in the ad calls the commercial ”inaccurate in its representation of my column.”

The group’s response?

WHAT NEXTGEN SAYS: “KCRG rated the first ad mostly true,” NextGen spokesman Bobby Whithorne said, referring to a fact-check of the ad released last week called “Joni Ernst’s Pledge.”

Nice defense: Our attack ad is mostly true!
