He's Baaack! Banks Attack Ads Part Deux!

The Lt. Governor's primary has returned to form on the GOP side. After running attack ads against Senator Jim Holt that were so outrageous that even the Democrat-Gazette admitted they were off base, Chuck Banks pulled the ads and attempted to stay positive for a few days. Now it seems that the personality of the psychopathic movie doll has once again possessed the soul of the Bank's campaign.

These ads, unwittingly- which is the way that much of Mr. Bank's campaign had been conducted- highlight just how out of touch Mr. Banks is with the Republican grassroots. For example, the ads highlight that Mr. Banks is a supporter of Pre-K programs and unlike Senator Holt has a "sensible plan for immigration". The Republican base is not in favor of Pre-K and considers "sensible plans for immigration" to be code words for a "guest worker program" which are code words for "amnesty". And they are right. These are two issues that the leadership of the party is aggressively attempting to hammer down the throats of the protesting grassroots. Holt is the guy standing up for the people tired of being pushed left.

Bank's also made a point to stay on the Demo-zette's good side this time by noting that the Demo-zette thinks Banks is a likeable guy and that they think Holt is a terrible legislator. Once again, the Banks folks are phoning the campaign in from another galaxy relative to most Republican voters. They know the Demo-zette, who actually opposed the marriage amendment, is not their buddy. The people read those things upside down.

Is Banks still running? I think Bearden exercised power of attorney and has now taken over the campaign.

Early on I was hopeful that Matayo or Banks would make this a legitimate race. Time seems to be running out.

Y'all can keep on spinning. I've heard Banks' ads. They aren't attacks if they speak the truth - which they do.

holt is definately going to face a run-off election... of course the nut cases who drink holt-aid will show up in mass to get him past the run-off. how's that for smart? the republicans will nominate a guy that will have less than a majority of the republican support because he is too much a nut case extremist for the nut case extremist in the republican party. then they will expect him to win in november. even a dolt like holt don't deserve a setup like that.

the only way for holt to even begin to be considered a legitimate candidate is if he gets more votes in the run-off than 50% of the votes cast in the original primary election.

the only prayer than holt has is if wooldridge does not get the democrat nomination.

hey republicans, please please keep sending us candidates like holt, with insanely high negatives even among republicans. we dems will be a shoo-in everytime.

ha ha ha ha!

Good for Banks, I am a strong Matayo supporter but I would gladly support Banks in the general.

There will be a runoff, if someone other than Holt doesn't win it outright.

If Holt ran an ad that brought up certain events in Chuck Bank's past as a federal prosecutor they would be true, and also be attack ads. It is possible to have an ad that is both true and an attack ad.
