Unsheathing the Long Knives

From this morning's political TV ads:

  • After a few weeks of getting pounded by attacks coupled with a strong positive ad for her opponent Stephen Gorham, Ronda Storms is finally answering. The GOP paid for a three-pack ad that denounces Gorham's supporters as liberals. A weird and unfair attack, but then again, what else could Republicans denounce about a pro-NRA Gulf War veteran who is running as a Democrat and has never voted for a tax increase? We wonder if this is a sign that Gorham's campaign was catching some wind? Still haven't seen any reliable polling in this Florida Senate campaign.

  • Can't find a version of it on the Internet, but unless you don't own a TV you've probably seen the latest attack on Charlie Justice by Republican Kim Berfield alleging that he has voted against the safety of children in school. Without parsing the ad, I'll just say it is the most effective attack yet in this race as Berfield moves away from her ridiculous insurance-oriented attacks against Justice.
