New Tom Delay Ad Targets Conservatives

WASHINGTON – The Campaign for America’s Future ran a full-page print ad in the conservative Washington Times today that introduces House Majority Leader Tom DeLay, R-Texas, as the new face of the conservative movement.

“Once upon a time,” the ad says beneath photos of conservative icons President Ronald Regan, Senator Barry Goldwater, R-Ariz., and President Dwight Eisenhower, “conservatives stood for honest government. Now, their chosen leader is the symbol of money corruption in Washington.”

The Campaign for America’s Future unveiled a new television ad last week that urged Congress to “wash its hands” of Rep. DeLay, highlighting the controversy surrounding the house majority leader, who is increasingly seen as a liability to his party.
