The Fox ad seemed to be a McCaskill ad for Senate, this one appears to be an ad against the Amendment 2. What does the Senate race (a national position) have to do with the amendment? Why did Fox attack a Senate candidate who has only one vote on this amendment like any other MO citizen.
Fox made ads against other republicans in at least 2 other States
First of all the ad ran only in Missouri, not nationally. What does the senate race have to do with the ammendment? Talent is on one side of the issue (after flipflopping) and McCaskill is on the other.
I would imagine Fox is supporting McCaskill because he wants people like McCaskill and Hardin who he also did an ad for to make it to the senate so they will support stem cell research nationally.
There are ads out here that are telling us to vote for McCaskill because she is pro=stem cell and against Talent because a vote for him means that Missouri won't benefit from any advances made by stem cell research. THAT'S why the matchup.
There is a real sense among the Amendment 2 supporters that it's expected strong support will help the Dems. They are appealing to the "reasonable" and the "pragmatic" and as a bonus sticking it to the religious zealots.
This is exactly how many of them think.
