McConnell Targeted In Anti-War Ads

A coalition of anti-war groups is airing about half a million dollars in ads against Kentucky Senator Mitch McConnell and other GOP colleagues facing re-election next year.
The ads urge them to -- quote -- "bring our troops home."

The ads depict children in fatigues in a training camp as an announcer says: "How long will Republican senators keep us stuck in Iraq? Should we start training our children now?"

The ads are sponsored by Americans Against Escalation in Iraq,
and will also target Republican Senators Norm Coleman of Minnesota,
Susan Collins of Maine and Pete Domenici of New Mexico.
