Freedom's Watch goes retro in Udall attack ad

The conservative group Freedom’s Watch is up with an ad in the Colorado Senate race mocking Rep. Mark Udall (D-Colo) as a dyed-in-the-wool liberal.

The ad features a hippie protester praising Udall for supporting federal funding for a Cabinet level Department of Peace.

“It looks like a van, but with Congressman Mark Udall’s help, it really could happen. Udall wanted to spend billions on a Department of Peace and a Peace Academy” the ad says. “Call Udall. Tell him no Department of Peace.”

The ad is scheduled to air statewide, but will go off the air on Thursday in observance of September 11. It is the second ad the group has aired in the Colorado Senate race.
