Negative ad with Pat Brady in September betrays the race is closer than ratings indicate

Congressman Sean Casten’s campaign released its first negative TV commercial against Republican challenger Jeanne Ives.

The new ad is part of the $2.4 million broadcast and cable TV buy Casten has through Election Day.

COMMENTARY: In light of Casten’s sub-par performance at Monday night’s candidates forum and internal polling, Casten’s campaign going to this hit piece in late September is an indication the 6th congressional district race is close, in spite of the major ratings (Cook Political, Sabato Crystal Ball) this seat as “Safe Democrat”.

Just like Casten’s opening and closing statements Monday, Casten now playing the Trump card, taking a single quote completely out of context from a Daily Herald story dated February 12. and not letting the viewer know the context the quote referenced.

By contrast, in the 14th Jim Oberweis’ attack ad gave the context of when and where the quote from Lauren Underwood was said, though the commercial showed the wrong date.

  1. Jumbo Boy Pritzker has weighed in on the hot mess in Kentucky, isn’t that the plot calling the kettle fat?

  2. If I was wavering I am definitely voting for Trump after this hatchet job commercial. Sounds like Franks on steroids.

  3. What else could Sean Casten do except attack Jean Ives on Trump? He hasn’t done anything of value in congress, business and science. ☹️

  4. Casten still going for the balls with his attacks on his detractors? Not to mention the misogynistic vandalism by his supporters on opponents signs. Who is this monster? Any strong endorsers on here that can enlighten us as to who he really is and why we should vote for him? Everything Ive read and heard says run far and fast away.

  5. Going negative usually means your campaign is in trouble.

    Pretty early for Casten to go negative, but because of new sweeping early voting it may be necessary to start now.

    Don’t forget the Dems have moles in all the county clerk’s office.

    In McHenry Co. The percentage of Dems is about 80%.

    I get that figure from my wife who worked there.

    Expect rigged elections.

  6. Do Casten or Brady suffer from coprophilia?

    They need help.

    Can Mayo be of help?

    Coprophilia can be said to be liking the smell, taste, or feel of feces in a sexual way. … Eating feces is also known as coprophagia. This is bad for one’s body. A person who eats feces is at risk of getting sick through hepatitis, infection, and AIDS.

  7. With the way that Casten and his backers have defaced Ives campaign signs–that is enough to say not to vote for Casten.

  8. Defacing signs with c***, b**** or w**** is really low.

    I purposely censored those words. ☹️🤕
