The Coakley ad called Brown a "lockstep" Republican who would block tougher oversight for Wall Street, wants more tax breaks for the wealthy, and favors denying emergency contraception to rape victims. "At times like these, we can't afford a Republican like Scott Brown," the announcer said.
In his new ad, Brown declares that the ad isn't true, though he doesn't specifically refute anything. "Instead of discussing issues like health care and jobs, they decided the best way to stop me is to tear me down. But the old way of doing things won't work anymore," Brown says. "Their attack ads are wrong and go too far. I'm Scott Brown, and I approved this message because I'm running in the name of every independent-thinking voter, to take on the political machine and their candidate. And with your help, I intend to win."
