Here's a quick round-up on the latest in the TV air war in the governor's race:
Governor Kulongoski has a new spot up - highlighting his fight against meth in Oregon. Check out the ad on Ted's site.
Ron Saxton's also got a spot up, focusing on illegal immigration. Download his ad (WMV).
Of course, the ad claims that Ted Kulongoski is somehow responsible for illegal immigrants voting in Oregon. The Secretary of State, who runs elections in Oregon, put out this statement (PDF) yesterday:
New television and radio ads from the Ron Saxton for Governor campaign are spreading false and unverified claims about non-citizens voting in Oregon. The records of the state Elections Division prove that this is an almost non-existent problem in Oregon.
“I looked at the past 15 years of general elections. Of the over 10 million votes cast in Oregon since 1991, only 10 people have met criteria that would warrant an investigation into their citizenship. Of those 10, only two were prosecuted,” said Secretary of State Bill Bradbury. “This ad is spreading inaccuracies and voters need to be aware of that.”
