Super PAC shifts resources from Hasner to Westby Andrew Abramson | October 9th, 2012
Whether you enjoyed or despised the “Flush Frankel” ad, you might have seen it for the last time.
After spending more than $200,000 to reserve air time on Palm Beach County market TV stations for anti-Lois Frankel ads, the Young Guns Super PAC is shifting its focus to Republican Allen West’s opponent, Democrat Patrick Murphy. The anti-Frankel ads have run for a couple of weeks.
“The plan from the start was always to split a portion of that for Colonel West,” Brad Dayspring, spokesman for the Super PAC, said in an e-mail. “Congressman West is a 2010 Young Gun, has dedicated his life to service, and is a problem solving, straight talking leader.”
The Super PAC’s strategy would seem to contradict the StPetePolls.org poll released yesterday that shows Democrat Frankel and Republican Adam Hasner in a tight race and West with a 12-point lead over Murphy.
