New RAGA ad links Ford's legislative gaffe and college arrest
Focus: Aaron Ford, Democratic candidate for attorney general
Who’s paying for it: The Republican Attorney Generals Association
Size of Buy: “Large” six figures
Where it’s running: Las Vegas
When it starts: Oct. 12
The gist: The ad connects two favored attacks against Ford, the state Senate majority leader. It leads off with a clip from the 2017 legislative session in which Ford states that he doesn’t know the state’s definition of “larceny,” and then transitions to recent reports about Ford being arrested in the early 1990s, including once for stealing tires.
