Attacks on McAuliffe begin

This is fun:

Former Democratic National Committee Chairman Terry McAuliffe’s longtime ties to the Clinton family are being used against him by Democratic primary opponent Brian Moran in the Virginia governor’s race.

In a radio ad that began airing over the weekend, Moran is highlighting McAuliffe’s support of Hillary Clinton against Barack Obama in the 2008 Democratic presidential primary.

“Terry McAuliffe may have a lot of big money for his campaign, but don’t let that hide the truth. The truth is, Terry McAuliffe led the campaign that ran the ‘3 a.m.’ attack ad against Barack Obama,” the ad states. “McAuliffe worked to put up the ads that questioned Obama’s ability to be president. The fact is, if Terry McAuliffe had his way, Barack Obama wouldn’t be our president today.” [...]

The ad is airing on urban radio stations in Richmond and Hampton Roads, suggesting Moran’s campaign is seeking to remind the region’s African-American voters—who could play a critical role in the outcome of the June 9 primary —of McAuliffe’s early allegiance to Clinton.
