Former congressman Nathan Deal joined rival John Oxendine this evening in spending precious primary cash on a TV ad aimed at Karen Handel, one day after she was endorsed in the GOP race for governor by Sarah Palin:
Unlike Oxendine, Deal focuses strictly on Handel’s positions on gay and lesbian issues.
Female actor: Karen Handel is telling lies about Nathan Deal. But in her first campaign, Karen Handel supported gay partner benefits, and gay adoption. And in this campaign, she denies it. If we can’t trust Karen Handel on gay partner benefits and gay adoption, how can we trust Karen Handel on anything?
Deal: I’m Nathan Deal, a pro-life conservative who’ll crack down on illegal immigration. My convictions won’t change with every election, ’cause I’m a man of my word.
No word yet on the size of the buy, or the markets.
