McCain Ad Blasts Hayworth On Abramoff (VIDEO)

Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) is not taking it easy going into his August 24 primary. In fact, has a new attack ad going after former Rep. J.D. Hayworth’s links to the Jack Abramoff scandal.

“Congressman J.D. Hayworth did favors for the infamous Jack Abramoff and his friends,” the announcer says. “He received $150,000 from Abramoff and his clients. John McCain exposed the Abramoff scandal. Jack went to prison, and most politicians gave back all the tainted money. But not J.D. He kept the money. John McCain — character matters.”

The TPM Poll Average gives McCain a lead of 53.6%-32.1%. The Republican primary will be held on August 24.
