Democrats Foolishly Driving Conservatives to the Polls in NOVA. Every once in a while campaigns make weird spending decisions. Such is the case in Northern Virginia today. The campaigns of Jennifer Boysko (D) and Kathleen Murphy (D) bought repeated advertising time on WMAL in the NOVA media market.
The ads tout things like defending women’s rights, a euphemism known to nearly all WMAL listeners as promoting abortion.
Boysko’s ad even mentions her opponent Danny Vargas by name (a no-no in low turnout low name id elections), and says that Vargas is running to promote his extremist agenda. I’m pretty sure most WMAL listeners support an “extremist agenda” even if Vargas doesn’t actually have an extremist agenda. So WMAL listeners and casual followers of state and local politics here is your cheat sheet.
Jennifer Boysko is a liberal: Instead vote for Danny Vargas so he can implement his “extremist agenda.”
Kathleen Murphy is a liberal: Instead vote for extremely reasonable Craig Parisot.
FYI to Boysko and Murphy: Vargas and Parisot are not required to report your ad buys as in-kind contributions…
