The National Republican Congressional Committee on Tuesday attacked South Carolina congressional candidate Elizabeth Colbert Busch's new ad, which promotes her independence and experience being a single mother.
In a written statement, NRCC spokeswoman Katie Prills said, “Elizabeth Colbert Busch is proving that she would fit right in with the politicians in Washington. She wants voters to think she is an independent but is filling her campaign coffers with thousands of dollars from unions and is aligning herself with the most liberal politicians in Washington. Colbert Busch will say and do anything to get elected no matter how dishonest it is.”
In the ad, released Tuesday, Colbert Busch said she won't "take any special interest pledges or follow any party line."
Colbert Busch faces former South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford (R) in the state's special election to fill the House seat vacated by Tim Scott.
