Olympia Snowe Draws Liberal Heat

Sep 8, 2009 3:15pm

ABC's Teddy Davis reports that Health Care for America Now, a liberal advocacy group, is launching a new ad pressuring Maine Sen. Olympia Snowe on the public option.

HCAN is spending $175,000 to air the ad on broadcast television, radio, and cable.

Two weeks ago, the group's television ad in the state of Maine targeted Snowe and fellow Republican Sen. Susan Collins.

The new ad focuses just on Snowe because the group's local organizers consider her to be more receptive to their message than Collins.

Watch the ads – "Insured" and "Maine Small Business" – HERE.

Teddy also got hold of the latest ad against the public option from Conservatives for Patients’ Rights, led by Rick Scott.

The conservative group made a $600,000 cable buy on CNN and Fox News. You can watch that ad HERE.
