Rove-linked group makes nearly $3 million ad buy attacking Obamacare, federal spending in Kent., Mo., Nev., Colo.

Crossroads GPS, a grassroots issue advocacy group that was formed under the auspices of Republican heavyweights Karl Rove and Ed Gillespie, has made another big ad buy in some key electoral states for the GOP. From the press release:

Crossroads Grassroots Policy Strategies (GPS) today announced the launch of a new round of issue advertisements Nevada, Missouri, Kentucky and Colorado. The spots are new installments into existing advertising rotations by Crossroads GPS in those states, and replace spots that entered rotation in late August.

The new Kentucky and Missouri spots call on Attorney General Jack Conway of Kentucky and Secretary of State Robin Carnahan of Missouri to oppose implementation of the massive ObamaCare legislation.  The Nevada and Colorado spots call on Sens. Harry Reid and Michael Bennet to rein in federal spending.

“While the federal government was running unimaginably huge deficits, Jack Conway, Robin Carnahan, Michael Bennet and Harry Reid supported massive new entitlements, big government mandates and stimulus bailouts,” said Crossroads GPS communications director Jonathan Collegio. “Crossroads GPS seeks to educate concerned citizens about the positions of these politicians, and urge them to get off this fiscally reckless path.”

The issue advocacy ads are the continuation of a $520,000 buy on TV stations in Kentucky, a $1.13m buy on TV stations in Missouri, a $425,000 buy in Colorado, and a $900,000 buy in Nevada.
