Coakley Releases Tough New Ad

To the "long list of oddities" in the Massachusetts U.S. Senate special election race, the Boston Globe reports this: "The first negative ad of the general election campaign has just gone up, and it's from the front-runner's campaign."

"The decision to air such an ad suggests that Coakley and her fellow Democrats are nervous enough about Brown creeping closer that they felt the need to try to damage him in the eyes of voters."

Meanwhile, Hotline OnCall reports the DSCC just launched an ad buy.

With the DNC also sending staffers to Massachusetts, it's now clear they see this special election as potentially much closer than either the Boston Globe or their own internal poll reportedly shows.

Here's the advertisement:
