KOB: National conservative PAC buys attacks ads against Heinrich

The first negative ad of the general election is on the TV airwaves in New Mexico, and it looks like it will be the first of many to come.

The first strike comes from the political right, and it’s aimed at Democrat Martin Heinrich, candidate for U.S. Senate.

“Heinrich has voted for trillions in irresponsible spending, for the failed 800 billion dollar stimulus,” the narrator says in the ad.
