Club For Growth Uses Eminent Domain To Assail Dem

The anti-tax, small-government organization Club for Growth has a message for Coloradans: You could lose your home if you elect Democrat Mark Udall to the Senate.

The Club is using the threat of eminent domain — the government's power to take over private property under some circumstances — to clobber Udall in a new ad. After recounting the cases of an elderly man who lost his house and a family business that was forced to close, the ad says, "Liberal Mark Udall votes to make it easier for government to take private property."

The last ad Club for Growth unleashed on Udall was bankrolled by Swift Boat Veterans For Truth patron Bob Perry. Did he scrounge up a few more hundred thousand dollars for this one? We'll let you know when we find out.
