RGA ad takes aim at Carter

The RGA hits Carter on jobs, education, and his state Senate track record in a new ad that comes with two weeks to go.

Deal Carter

The Republican Governors Association has returned to Georgia for the homestretch, unveiling a new ad this morning that savages Jason Carter on multiple fronts. Titled “Realize,” the ad addresses several topics on Carter’s record and plans, should he become governor, that have become hot button issues in recent weeks.

“What have we learned about Jason Carter?” a narrator asks in the spot. “He doesn’t have a plan to create many jobs anytime soon. We also learned that, when he had the chance, Jason Carter voted against additional education funding. But Carter does want to expand Obamacare. And now we learn, in his four years in the state Senate, Carter never passed a bill.”

The final point echoes a recent attack from Governor Nathan Deal’s campaign, which has repeatedly cited the lack of a Carter-sponsored bill being signed into law, as well as his lack of leadership positions in the state Senate.
Already the RGA has poured well over $1 million into the governor’s race. Poll have continued to show a tight race, but most agree that momentum has been moving Deal’s way. You can view the RGA spot below the fold.
