A Super PAC's off-beat, aerial campaign against Michelle Nunn


Ending Spending Action Fund is taking to a different kind of airway to continue its million-dollar-plus assault on Democratic U.S. Senate candidate Michelle Nunn.

Tailgaters at the Georgia-Clemson and Georgia Tech-Wofford games today, and the NASCAR race Sunday at Atlanta Motor Speedway, will see the above message from the Super PAC, linking Nunn to President Barack Obama.

In addition, Ending Spending is launching a radio ad accusing Nunn of being an Obama "rubber stamp" and bringing up the Virtual Murrell fundraiser. It also bought TV ad time during those aforementioned events for full penetration of Georgia's sporting inclined voters.

And the group is launching a new AbsolutelyNunn.com website, featuring the web video shown below. It is a faux positive ad for Nunn featuring the full litany of attacks -- from the leaked memo to her Brunswick land deal to her D.C.-area upbringing.

Ending Spending president Brian Baker described it as a Saturday Night Live "Weekend Update-ish" spoof. We'll let you decide if it's more Tina Fey or Colin Quinn.
