Shaheen/Sununu Ads in New Hampshire

Republicans have to be chewing on a lot of Tums wondering just how many U.S. Senate seats they're going to lose in November and tops on that list is the one that former New Hampshire Governor Jeanne Shaheen is going to take from Republican incumbent John Sununu. Most polling this year shows Shaheen 8 to 12 points in front of Sununu and easily on pace to be New Hampshire's first female Senator.

Here's a couple of good ads from that campaign… The first is a Shaheen ad asking Granite Staters why they would reelect someone who has followed George W. Bush so loyally and saying "when you're in a hole, stop digging."

Next is an ad from the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee (DSCC) implying this basic question: If you wouldn't vote for George W. Bush again, why would you vote for John Sununu?
