OLYMPIA, Wash. - Democratic incumbent Sen. Patty Murray is the target of a new statewide TV ad calling into question her "mom in tennis shoes" status.
American Action Network, a Washington, D.C.-based group, launched the ad on its website and it begins airing Tuesday.
The 30-second ad shows an unidentified woman wearing dirty sneakers walking on the backs of three people who are meant to represent small business, families, and children.
Murray faces several candidates in Washington's top two primary on Aug. 17, including Dino Rossi, a two-time gubernatorial runner-up. Also in the primary is former Washington Redskins player Clint Didier, a Republican endorsed by former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin.
The group's website says it is a nonprofit group that supports "center-right" policies.
