New TV Ad busts Collins for war votes

A new TV ad, which will run for roughly one week on six channels in Portland and Bangor, calls on Senator Susan Collins to vote to end the war in Iraq -- and lambastes her "continuing support for the war, support for the president and her repeated votes against efforts to bring [the war] to a safe and responsible end." The ad, sponsored by the non-profit Americans United for Change (which also led the charge against Social Security privatization a couple years ago, and which has paid for similar ads targeting other senators in other states), splices together clips of chaos and destruction in Iraq with a shot of Collins and Bush smiling together. This is part of a statewide effort to pressure Collins to join the other members of Maine's delegation in their opposition to the war.
