Group Behind Election Ads Weighs In On Tax Deal

"A new voice is weighing in on the congressional tax debate: Crossroads Grassroots Policy Strategies, an outside group that spent millions to create a Republican majority in the House.

Crossroads GPS says it's targeting nine House Democrats with radio ads in support of the compromise between the White House and Republican leaders. And the ads sound pretty much like the campaign attacks produced by the group two months ago.

'After two years of bailouts and wasteful spending, enough is enough. Call Congressman Connolly, tell him to stand up to Pelosi and demand a vote,' says one ad — part of a $400,000 buy — that targets Democrat Gerry Connolly, who barely won re-election in his Northern Virginia district.

But Jonathan Collegio, spokesman for Crossroads GPS, says it isn't a political ad. 'This is a legislative advocacy campaign aimed to educate concerned citizens about a crucial issue that Congress is facing.'"
