Things are really starting to heat up in Congressional races around the country, and the TN senatorial race is no different. With, potentially, control of the senate on the line with this race, national attention is being drawn to Democrat Harold Ford, Jr and Republican Bob Corker. I have noticed that recent ads have been more negative than previous in the campaign, with the Republican's latest attack hitting a new low:
In the ad, a blond white woman brags, "I met Harold at the Playboy party." At the end she looks into the camera, holds her hand like a telephone and says, "Harold, call me," before winking. [...] The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People criticized the ad. "It is a powerful innuendo that plays to pre-existing prejudices about African-American men and white women," Hilary Shelton, head of the Washington NAACP office, told the Los Angeles Times.
