WATCH: VoteForVets.org Brings Back Ad Attacking Flake's Votes Re: Military

The self-described "largest progressive group of veterans" is plunking down another (at least) $117,000 to attack Rep. Jeff Flake's (R-CD6) previous votes against the G.I. Bill and other veterans-related legislation.

The ad features a Chandler veteran (Steven Lopez) speaking to the camera and focuses solely on Flake's votes, even though Democratic nominee Richard Carmona is himself a veteran.

VoteVets.org says they are teaming up with the National Education Association to bring back the ad, and say that they are spending another $315,000.  The filing with the Federal Election Commission only shows that they spent $117,012.50 yesterday, bringing their total to $281,162.50.  (It also shows that the Flake-Carmona race is taking place in Indiana, a coding error that made it more difficult to find.)
