After Poll Drop, Cahill Launches Radio, TV Ads

Massachusetts gubernatorial candidate Timothy Cahill has launched an ad blitz after precipitous falls in several recent public opinion polls.

The independent candidate began airing ads both on television and radio on Thursday, less than a week after a survey showed him falling to 9 percent in his race against Democrat Deval Patrick, Republican Charles Baker and Green-Rainbow Party candidate Jill Stein.

In the TV ad, Cahill notes he was the focus of a $1 million negative ad blitz by the Republican Governors Association. He casts Patrick as a big government candidate, while deriding Baker as "a health insurance executive."

The former Democrat touts his independence and says, "When they attack me, they attack all of us."

The majority of voters in Massachusetts are unenrolled.

This program aired on July 1, 2010. The audio for this program is not available.
