Jim Graves is a "robot," new Michele Bachmann ad alleges [VIDEO]
Jim Graves is a robot programmed by Nancy Pelosi and Barack Obama, according to Bachmann's new ad.
Two weeks before election day, Michele Bachmann is pressing her advantage over her Democratic challenger Jim Graves.
Today, Bachmann's campaign is paying for a promoted tweet linked to a new ad alleging that Graves is a "D.C. robot that won't work for us."
Here's a transcript of the ad, followed by the footage:
Narrator: Why are the big spenders in Washington supporting Jim Graves? Because he's programmed just like they are. Graves supports Obamacare, the failed trillion-dollar stimulus, and the $700 billion Wall Street bailout -- just like all the other big spenders. [Cue images of Nancy Pelosi and Obama]
If we put Big Spendin' Jim Graves in Congress, he'll just keep listening to Washington's liberal leaders, following their commands. Big Spendin' Jim Graves -- another D.C. robot that won't work for us.
Michele Bachmann: I'm Michele Bachmann and I approve this message.
Graves, for his part, insists he's a flesh-and-blood job creator:
