GOP takes on Garamendi
|Today, the California Republican Party released an attack ad against Insurance Commissioner John Garamendi, who is the Democratic nominee for lieutenant governor.|
The ad will be up on the GOP site at 11:30, but for now here's the script:
We lost our home...and our handicapped daughter almost lost her medical care...because of John Garamendi. As Insurance Commissioner, Garamendi sold our insurance company to a junk bond king and foreign bank. They made billions while elderly and handicapped policyholders were financially devastated. Garamendi accepted contributions from lawyers who profited from the deal...and even took a $100,000 job from the lead investors partner. John Garamendi didn't protect us, how can you trust him to protect you.
Depending on how large the buy is, this ad is likely to please the Republican base, as Sen. Tom McClintock is running against Garamendi and is a favorite of California's conservatives.
