Hayworth launches first TV ads targeting McCain

J.D. Hayworth is launching his first television ad targeting Sen. John McCain in their Republican primary fight.

McCain’s campaign says its review of public disclosures of advertising time shows that Hayworth is spending only a meager $2,100 on cable ads on Fox News in the Tucson market.

Hayworth spokesman Mark Sanders says the campaign is spending “considerably more” than that and the ad is running statewide on cable. He refused to provide specifics.

The ad features Hayworth’s wife, Mary, saying McCain is “hiding his record behind false attacks” on her husband.

McCain has a significant fundraising advantage over Hayworth and has for months been airing television ads touting his record in the Senate and attacking Hayworth.

  1. Note to Sen. McCain….received your 2-sided, 4-color attack piece on JD Hayworth in yesterday’s mail. Wow, you’re sure spending a lot of money to smear Mr. Hayworth, but I have to tell you sir, it’s backfiring. You’re getting to look and sound like the snarky old man yelling at the kids to get off his lawn, rather than the elder statesman you once were.
