Lack of Vetting Dooms Attack Ad in NM Governorís Race
The Blaze ^ | Posted on September 10, 2010 | Scott Baker

Sometimes it only takes 30 seconds to render a lot of expensive TV production effort totally worthless.

This come to us from the New Mexico governor’s race. The Republican frontrunner is Susana Martinez. She‘s facing Bill Richardson’s Lieutenant Governor Diane Denish.

Without giving away the punchline here, the NEA launched the original salvo on behalf of Denish. It didn’t work out very well:

THE VIDEO AD TITLED "CONVICTED"!

Thus far the Denish campaign has not commented on whether or not they had approved of the NEA ad ahead of time.

The race is close — but Martinez has a slight lead. As Ed Morrisey says, “Don’t be surprised to see that trend accelerate a bit after this round of dueling attack ads.”

Direct, no nonsense talk is EXACTLY what people want. We are fed up with the wimpy, PC lies, and bull crap. Just tell it like it is.

(...and boy, does she!)

IMHO, the dems are going deeper into super-duper-desperate mode with each day that brings them closer to NOV 2nd.

That's when a political "accident", like the not very well vetted attack ad on Susana, can happen.

It also can make the current CIC of the USA slip up 24 hours before the event and tell us in front of all the cameras of every major news outlet that he believes Sept 11th is a "wonderful day".

I believe he believes it.

I couldn't believe he messed up and said it.

I watched several of her ads on youtube. They’re good, and seem to be effective. Sharon Angle’s campaign needs to give them a call and asks how to create such ads.

Yeah. Sharron has so much easy material to work with too.
Harry is a walking idiot, hand-maiden to Obama.

The article says the race is “tight” - I sure hope this ad brings it home for her.

It’s not clear to me from the Martinez ad what Denish did. Did she put up some kind of outlandish attack ad that backfired?

The very short version: the NEA put up an attack ad for Denish and against frontrunner Susana Martinez that featured a teacher who proceeded to badmouth Martinez’s education strategy.

The only problem? Martinez happens to have been the prosecutor who put said teacher’s husband away for 23 years for kidnapping – something that was not exactly brought up in the first campaign ad, and which certainly calls into question the true source of the teacher’s ire.

Naturally, the Martinez campaign is took advantage of the mistake.
