The conservative Patriot Super PAC has made a $4,300 ad buy in Iowa for a television spot against current Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell’s potential presidential campaign in three years, according to the the Sunlight Foundation’s news blog.
The ad warns voters in Iowa, where the first contest of the presidential primary is traditionally held, that McDonnell “pushed the largest tax increase in Virginia history.”
McDonnell, already rumored to be a Republican candidate for 2016, is term-limited and will step down as governor early next year.
The website for Patriot Super PAC says the group is “dedicated to the core principles of liberty and limited government on which our country was founded.”
