National Republican Congressional Campaign

Attack ads complete with a creepy voice and dark music are common in congressional races. In the campaign to replace retiring Rep. Richard Hanna (R-Barneveld), they have been ubiquitous.

Last week, Democratic candidate Dan Maffei released the first television commercial in the highly contested 24th Congressional district. Now, the second ad for that race has come out, and it takes a decidedly different tone.
