Majority Action

Liberal 527 Ties Republican Senators To Bush

The liberal 527 Majority Action has a new ad criticizing Sen. Elizabeth Dole (R-NC) for siding with President Bush "92 % of the time." The ad is nearly identical to one the group ran in June against Sen. Gordon Smith (R-OR) — except Majority Action calculated that Smith voted with Bush only 85 percent of the time. (Smith, in his own ads, likes to show how he partners with Obama.)

Both ads also ding the senators for voting for oil industry tax breaks and against increased fuel mileage standards. Watch the Oregon ad, which was back on the air last week, below.
