MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - The race for the U.S. House seat in
Alabama's 2nd District has heated up - thanks to competing ads by
Republican and Democratic congressional campaign committees.
The Republican ad tries to link Democratic incumbent Bobby Bright to Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi.
The GOP ad targeting Bright says he has voted with Pelosi 71 percent of the time. Bright disputes that number.
He said Monday that he has voted his conscience and has often been on the opposite side of the roll call from the California Democrat.
The Democratic ad says Republican challenger Martha Roby's "no new taxes" pledge would allow some big businesses and others to keep massive tax breaks.
