A new TV ad will began airing on Wednesday, Feb. 7 in states represented by Republican senators who filibustered a resolution expressing opposition to President Bush's plan to increase the number of U.S. troops in Iraq.
The ad buy in targeted states criticize Senators Warner, Brownback, Sununu, Smith, Voinovich, Specter, McConnell, and Dole for filibustering a bipartisan measure, sponsored by Senators John Warner (R-VA), Carl Levin (D-MI), and Joseph Biden (D-DE), that expressed disapproval of the president's escalation plan for Iraq. Republicans blocked the debate so there was no vote on the measure. "At a time when most Americans oppose the Bush escalation plan, and when a solid bipartisan majority of Senators has agreed on a resolution expressing that opposition, it is outrageous that a handful of Senators would stand in the way," said Tom Matzzie, Washington director of MoveOn.org Political Action. "We are going to make sure their constituents know what they've done," concluded Nita Chaudhary of MoveOn.org Political Action.
