New Mexico: DSCC Targets Wilson in TV Ad

The Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee slammed the voting record of former Rep. Heather Wilson (R) in its first TV ad in the New Mexico Senate race.

The spot, launched today, accuses Wilson of supporting corporate tax breaks that helped to send jobs to China and India. Wilson faces Rep. Martin Heinrich (D) in a competitive race to replace retiring Sen. Jeff Bingaman (D).

"She even signed a pledge that protected those special tax breaks," the ad's announcer says. "That may be good for Wall Street and wealthy corporations. But what if you live here? Heather Wilson looks out for them — not us."

The ad is running statewide on cable and broadcast for a week and cost the DSCC $150,000, according to a source that tracks ad buys.
