Historical Relics: The 2008 Attack on the "Liberal" Heather Wilson

In my story in today's New Mexican I mentioned some of the attack ads that Club For Growth ran against Heather Wilson in her 2008 Republican primary campaign against Steve Pearce, as well one that Pearce himself ran.

Wilson called these "ancient history," and as I pointed out in the story, she's making every effort not to be attacked as a "liberal" in the 2012 primary.

When I asked her about these old ads, she referred to them as "ancient history." Well, consider this a little history lesson.

Here's the two old Club For Growth attack ads I mentioned in the article, plus one I just stumbled upon.

And here's an ad Steve Pearce himself approved.
