The conservative 501(c)(4) nonprofit CrossroadsÂ GPS is hitting the airwaves forÂ theÂ first time in the Maine Senate race, with a spot targeting independent candidate Angus King.
The airwaves have grown increasingly crowded in recent weeks, as Kingâ€™s onetime firm grasp on the three-way race appears to have loosened. TheÂ CrossroadsÂ ad exclusively targets the former governor.
â€œKing supported big tax increases that would have hurt small businesses. Worse, as governor, KingÂ slashedÂ funding for our schools. And King increased spending by 51 percent,â€ says the narrator of the 30-second spot.
Both the National Republican Senatorial Committee and the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee have joined the air war in Maine. Crossraodsâ€™s entranceÂ into the fray is the latest sign that Republicans still think GOP nominee Charlie Summers can win.
King, the popular former governor, remains the front-runner in the race, polls show. But the NRSC attack ads took enough of a toll to prompt the DSCC to join the fight.
Officially, the DSCC isÂ neutralÂ in the race. But most national Democrats privately believe that King would caucus with the party if he is elected. Democratic nominee Cynthia Dill hasnâ€™t received any national assistance. A DSCC spokesman responded to the Crossroads ad on Tuesday by bashing Crossroads co-founder Karl Rove, but he didnâ€™t mention any of the candidates in the race.
