PA GOP Senate Primary Escalates: Jeff Bartos Group Knifes Sean Parnell

In case you missed it, the Pennsylvania Republican U.S. Senate primary is rapidly escalating, with a pro-Jeff Bartos super PAC launching a brutally negative TV ad against Sean Parnell.

Things are only going to get worse from here.

Via Politico:

  • “A super PAC backing a rival Republican candidate is hitting the airwaves with an ad highlighting two instances when Pennsylvania Senate candidate Sean Parnell’s wife sought protective orders against him.”
  • “The ad, from the pro-Jeff Bartos “Jobs for Our Future” super PAC, is slated to run on TV on Saturday night during the Penn State University football game against Auburn University. The TV expense and a sizable digital campaign will add up to a six-figure buy, according to the super PAC.”
  • The 60-second ad opens with a montage of Fox Nation clips featuring Parnell making comments about women, including saying, ‘The idea that a woman can live a happy and fulfilling life without a man — I think it’s all nonsense.’”
