WASHINGTON — American Crossroads, the tax-exempt group political group founded by nationally noted GOP strategist Karl Rove and others, is making its first foray into Illinois on Wednesday with a cartoon-style ad attacking Democratic Senate candidate Alexi Giannoulias for recklessness, using two widely cited allegations raised by his GOP opponent.
The race for President Obama’s former Senate seat has attracted considerable attention from outside groups. The U.S. Chamber of Commerce launched an ad attacking Giannoulias in August. This week, the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee targeted Republican Mark Kirk with a television ad campaign of its own.
