Political ad in targets wrong Salazar

Filed under: Daily News | Tags:,

A radio ad aimed at targeting U.S. Rep. John Salazar names the wrong Salazar.

The ad paid for by Americans United for Life mentions the name of his younger brother, Ken Salazar, five times.

Ken Salazar is a former U.S. senator from Colorado who is now the interior secretary. John Salazar represents the state’s 3rd Congressional District and is being challenged by Republican state lawmaker Scott Tipton.

Americans United for Life, a Washington-based, anti-abortion group, tells The Daily Sentinel that a corrected ad will be aired.

The group is criticizing Salazar for backing health care reform, which it says will undo a ban on taxpayer-funded abortions. President Barack Obama signed an executive order to affirm the ban.
