Breaking up is hard to do

The Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee is up with a new ad in the Oregon Senate race, featuring a woman symbolically dumping Sen. Gordon Smith (R-Ore.).

In the ad, she accuses Smith of voting to privatize Social Security, offering tax breaks to big oil companies and, yes, spending $1.2 million dollars on a pair of golf clubs.

“This relationship with Gordon Smith isn’t working for me,” she says in the ad.

Smith is running against Democrat state House Speaker Jeff Merkley.
