New Political Ad Attacks Senator


With just one month until the election, the political attacks between Senator Robert C. Byrd and republican John Raese are getting personal.

Last week Byrd said that Dike Raese, John's father, would not have supported his son's political race against Byrd, but Monday Raese fired back in a radio ad.

The ad uses a Fox News interview with Byrd where he defended his mother's use of a racial slur. Byrd says the word was not intended as a racial slur, but rather to describe an ignorant person.

Raese ends the ad by saying his father would fully suppport his run for senate.
