GOP says Bright Violated Promise to Stay Positive

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - Alabama Republican Party officials say Democratic 2nd Congressional District candidate Bobby Bright has violated his promise to run a positive campaign.

State Republican Party chairman Mike Hubbard said Tuesday that ads paid for by the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee violate a pledge signed by Bright promising that his campaign would not be negative.

Hubbard said the pledge was violated when the DCCC ran ads in the 2nd District accusing Republican candidate state Rep. Jay Love of not providing health insurance for many of his employees when he owned a chain of Subway restaurants in Montgomery.

Bright responded that his campaign did not pay for negative ads and that his campaign is focusing on issues like economic development and providing strong, ethical leadership.

    It says at the end of the ads that it was paid for by the democrat committee not Bright. What about all of the negative ads Jay Love has out there?
