Focus: Democratic congressional candidate Susie Lee
Who’s paying for it: Republican congressional candidate Danny Tarkanian’s campaign
Size of buy: Tarkanian’s campaign did not respond to a question about the size of the buy
When it starts: Oct. 23
Where it’s running: Las Vegas
The gist: Las Vegas City Councilwoman Lois Tarkanian, a Democrat, tells Lee to “stop the lies” about her son, Danny Tarkanian, who is running as a Republican for Nevada’s 3rd Congressional District. In the ad, Lois Tarkanian notes that “other people lost in court” for using similar attacks, referencing a 2005 defamation lawsuit her son won against then-state Sen. Mike Schneider.
“I didn’t expect it of Susie Lee,” Lois Tarkanian says. “… They don’t care because you tell this lie over and over and over again and people will believe it. And I don’t think people realize what it does to the rest of the family.”
