COMING TO BATTLEGROUND AIRWAVES — VoteVets.org eyes three states: Ads focusing on national security and the Renewable Fuel Standard will hit cable and broadcast television in Iowa, Michigan and Colorado next week, backed by a total of $600,000, the VoteVets.org Action Fund said today. The PAC previously announced plans to spend $5 million to help Democrats retain the Senate. Democratic Sen. Debbie Stabenow and Democratic Senate hopeful Gary Peters, both of Michigan, are highlighted in one ad (http://youtu.be/hmsLhppP1l4); GOP Rep. Mike Coffman (CO-06) is attacked in another ad (http://youtu.be/GrHrlMMTeKQ); and in a re-upping of an earlier spot, Iowa Democratic Senate hopeful Bruce Braley gets a positive name-check along with a Republican — Gov. Terry Branstad (http://youtu.be/BFugR28g2JQ).
