A new TV ad against Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) — created by GOP strategist Floyd Brown, the man behind the Willie Horton TV ads in 1988 — accuses Reid of being supported by Arab slave-masters.

The ad, sponsored by an independent group called the Republican Majority Campaign, goes after Reid’s support from MGM Mirage Chairman Jim Murren, who appeared in a Reid ad boasting of Reid’s support for his CityCenter project, and the jobs that were created in Las Vegas. The announcer then attacks Murren’s business partner from Dubai, Sheik Mohammad bin Rashid Al Maktoum, accusing Maktoum of using “slave labor” in his country: “Slave labor in Dubai, union labor in Las Vegas — and both the slave-bosses and the union-bosses want Harry Reid re-elected.”Reid campaign manager Brandon Hall fired back at the ad, telling the Las Vegas Sun: “If these guys knew anything about Nevada they would realize how outrageous it is for them to run ads regarding the state’s largest employer at a time when Nevada is suffering such high unemployment.”
