Behind the Ad: The U.S. Chamber of Commerce likes coal and Republicans who agree

By Richard K. Barry

As Roll Call reports, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce has released a second TV ad this week cheering on another Republican Senate candidate who loves coal. This time it's West Virginia Rep. Shelley Moore Capito who gets the helping hand as she attempts to capture the seat that will be left vacant due to Democratic Sen. Jay Rockefeller's departure.
The ad follows a TV ad released on Monday in Kentucky that focused on Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell’s efforts to support coal. Coal is poised to play a central role in both states’ Senate races.

I'm quite taken by the folksiness of this piece. I think they dug up Grandpa Walton to do the voice over. Of course Grandpa Walton (aka Will Geer) was a well known lefty in real life, and he is dead. Maybe they got Wilford Brimley
