Get ready, Fox News viewers: conservative group Club For Growth is launching another set of Pittsburgh-area commercials hammering "liberal congressman" Tim Murphy.
The group first started airing spots around New Year criticizing the Upper St. Clair Republican on earmarks and union legislation, and the latest ads start running Saturday. (One is above and the other is here.) From a press release:
Washington, DC – In Pennsylvania’s Eighteenth Congressional District, the Club for Growth PAC is launching two more 15 second advertisements aimed at encouraging the constituents of Republican Congressman Tim Murphy to ask themselves the following question: “Why’d he do that?” Tim Murphy’s record certainly might leave some Pennsylvania Republicans asking themselves the same questions. Tim Murphy has supported the expansion of government-run health care, raised taxes, and opened the door for health benefits for illegal immigrants. Tim Murphy also encouraged Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac to make larger loans, and then he voted to bail them out. The new ads are scheduled to start running tomorrow throughout Pennsylvania’s Eighteenth Congressional District.
Fellow Republican Evan Feinberg is courting the right wing of the party in his run against Murphy in the primary. The Club For Growth said again in its statement today that it "has not made an endorsement" in the race.
