GOP Gets $3.6 mil from Big Oil, Launches Attack Ads worth $3 Million Against Dems

An arm of the Republican National Committee is poised to launch $3 million in ads attacking Democrats on energy security. The ads are due to begin on Sunday in the battleground states of Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin.

Campaign finance records indicate that through June 2, 2008, the Republican Party had received $3,652,286 from oil and gas interests. Through June 2, John McCain himself had received $791,777 from the oil industry and media reports indicate that he has since raised millions more at fundraisers held in Houston, Dallas, and elsewhere.
