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.

    The repulicans ads are negative to the point that you can't believe or trust there ads. But then this is a republican state and they only will represent republicans. (there own words.) Demacrats need to just tell it like it is. At least they try to get thing done. This state doesnt recognize anything positive. They always cower to the republicans who think the are the rider on the white horse. People need to be American Voters not a party voter. The two party groups don't work and never will we the people have made them to powerful. Its time to vote for candidates that will represent All the people not special groups.

    "No NEW TAXES would allow SOME to KEEP massive tax breaks" ? Which SOME would this be? The "SOME" that no longer pay as well to the Dem pols? The "SOME" that are owned by Rep voters? Which "SOME"? You really need to clarify this, as it is the DEMOCRATIC LEGISLATURE that voted IN these "MASSIVE TAX BREAKS"
