The National Republican Senatorial Committee is out with another ad targeting Angus King and his wind energy business. The spot, titled Smooth Operator, asks, Angus King got a sweetheart deal for his windmills. What did Mainers get?
The spot then features five unidentified residents from the area of the 22-turbine Record Hill wind project in which King and business partner Rob Gardiner held a 10 percent stake until January 2011. They accuse King of profiting from a wind turbine installation thats changed the area where they live.

Were not going to retrieve the tops of those mountains, a woman says.
I just dont like the idea of him being our senator, the last man to speak in the ad says. I just think its wrong.
A National Republican Senatorial Committee official confirmed the ad is the second in a two-week, statewide ad buy worth $650,000. The first ad also targeted King on the wind energy front and targeted Democrat Cynthia Dill for what the ad called her liberal policies.

do we really want to piss off a lot of ac/dc fans? if he got some tax money to do something like this we may need to let it go, lest we piss off part of the electorate...
Malcolm King’s a better guitar player.
They’re trying to drive King voters back to the democrat, so Summers can slip in with a plurality.
