Coming to your TV: Ad wars on Supreme Court seat start in Missouri
By Chuck Raasch, St. Louis Post-Dispatch
“. . . A political action committee that has donated to Democratic Secretary of State Jason Kander says it will launch this week $130,000 in television advertising in St. Louis and Kansas City critical of Sen. Roy Blunt, R-Mo.
Blunt agrees with other Senate Republicans that the choice to replace the late Justice Antonin Scalia should be delayed until after a new president is elected in November.
President Barack Obama has promised to come up with a nominee in the coming days, despite Senate Republicans’ vows to not even have a hearing on the nominee.
The ad will be paid for a liberal PAC, End Citizens United. It asks people to call Blunt and ‘tell him to stop protecting his job, and start doing it.'”
