RNC Frames One of This Year’s Defining Issues

The Republican National Committee has dropped $3.4 million to blast Barack Obama’s energy policy on television in Wisconsin, Michigan, Ohio and Pennsylvania. Brad Todd, with the firm OnMessage Inc., created the spot and said it would air through next week.

Obama spokesman Hari Sevugan slapped back, saying McCain promises to “continue the Bush approach of trying to drill our way out of our energy crisis.” Obama, he said, is offering “historic investment in alternative energy development.”
