League of American Voters Buys TV Ad Time Urging Kanjorski To Vote NO

The League of American Voters commenced an ad campaign aimed squarely at Paul Kanjorski. When I first saw the ad I thought O"Brien was finally jumping back in the game. However, when it finished the source was very clear.

From the PRN Newswire:

TV Ads Target Kanjorski to Vote 'No' on Obama-Pelosi Plan
LAV launches Heavy TV-Ad Blitz – 500 GRPs – in Wilkes Barre-Scranton Market

WASHINGTON, March 1 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- U.S. Congressman Paul Kanjorski is urged to vote "No" on the Obama-Pelosi government takeover of healthcare, in a major TV-ad campaign launched today by the League of American Voters (

The ads will run in the Wilkes Barre-Scranton media market, a 500 GRP buy.

"Congressman Kanjorski, if you think you've got trouble now back home in your district, cast the deciding vote for Obamacare," said Bob Adams, executive director for the League of American Voters. "If you want to protect seniors from $500 billion in Medicare cuts, vote 'No.' If you want to stop job-killing tax increases on working families in the midst of the worst recession since the Great Depression, vote 'No'."

The script for the TV ad, called "Stop Them Now Kanjorski!" reads:
