Crossroads Ads Hitting 5 Senators: ‘No More Blank Checks!’

Crossroads Grassroots Policy Strategies — the independent 501(c)(4)  group with ties to former Bush strategist Karl Rove and former RNC Chair Ed Gillespie — launched a new round of television advertising that targets five U.S. senators in key states on the issue of excessive government spending and debt. New TV spots begin running today through August 6 on network television stations in Florida, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska and Ohio, and will be complemented by targeted online advertising in those states.

The ads aim to sway U.S. Senators Bill Nelson of Florida, Claire McCaskill of Missouri, Jon Tester of Montana, Ben Nelson of Nebraska and Sherrod Brown of Ohio.
