The Republican Governor’s Association, already having blotted out Treasurer Tim Cahill, are now trying to do the same for Governor Deval Patrick, launching a new wave of negative ads against the Governor. (And they are still carpet bombing Tim Cahill for good measure.) The Governor has responded with an internet ad mocking Baker, and hitting him back. You can be assured that the Democratic Governor’s Association will be weighing in at some point with some hard hitting ads on Baker. They don’t have an Independent Governor’s Association, do they???
And in case there was some hope that the RGA would run out of money Haley Barbour and the RGA put $19 million in the bank last quarter, bringing their cash on hand to $40 million. The RGA has extended the latest ad buy through August.
