Attack Ad, Secret Recording Fueling Fire Before Primary Election
DES MOINES, Iowa -- Three Democrats are battling for the Third District nomination for their party, but two of them are in an altercation on their own over the definition of an attack ad. Just days before the Democratic primary election, Jim Mowrer launched an ad Wednesday against Mike Sherzan. Sherzan said Mowrer broke his word that he wasn’t going to go negative. In response, Sherzan released a recorded phone conversation the two candidates had on May 11.
