We're two years away from it, but that is not stopping Republican hopeful Chuck DeVore from launching an attack ad on Senator Barbara Boxer in the race for the California Senate seat. The ad is a 90 second spot and thankfully Internet-only. (sorry I can't figure out how to embed video)
Mr. DeVore is currently a member of the California Assembly representing coastal Orange County in the 70th District and he is the current Republican whip in the Assembly. Due to term limits, is ineligible to run for reelection in 2010 and has thus set his sights on the US Senate. He's written a novel about a Chinese invasion of Taiwan and he worked for a time for former Congressman Christopher Cox. But in California, he is known for one issue, an unrelenting advocacy of nuclear power. He's authored four bills on nuclear power, none of which have made it out of committee. His other mantra is lower taxes.
