Politics is indeed a contact sport. We're about to find out whether Lynn Jenkins has a glass jaw or is ready to go the distance.
Club for Growth is about to spend $75,000 on an add they call "Tax Hiker" (ad below). Specifically, the Club cites votes on gas taxes, property taxes and the sales tax. The votes are documented on the ad.
As a citizen, I think it's too bad that this race is going to be taken over by outside groups. Jim Ryun and Lynn Jenkins seemed to be playing pretty well in the sandbox (for the most part). Anyway, since Jim Ryun won't likely call on these ads to come down and since Club for Growth probably wouldn't listen even if he did, as a political junkie, I do think this race will be more entertaining because of the outside ads (my hunch tells me this is the first of many from both sides).
A note to the Jenkins camp, I will be an equal opportunity poster. If an outside group comes in with an ad hitting Ryun (which there is a good chance will happen), I will put it up if it's available.
Dedicated to the proposition that Nancy Boyda is a one termer.
