Davis Camp: Take It Down



The Jim Davis campaign has sent threatening lawyer letters to TV stations, demanding they stop running a new TV ad that attacks Jim Davis and is funded by a political committee backed by sugar money. Read it here.

Note: The Smith campaign says it did not coordinate the ad, but that the minimum wage reference is correct. Davis was one of 28 Democrats to vote against a motion to recommit the minimum wage bill to strike an exemption for "computer professionals, funeral directors and some sales employees from the minimum wage and to phase in the minimum wage in the Northern Mariana Islands."
