FIRST WATCH: Repub. AGs Go After Rotellini, Say She "Doesn't Support Securing The Border"...From Criminals, Terrororists, etc. (FOLLOWING MONEY IN ARIZONA'S POLITICS)

(Arizona's Politics has added a Match Game as a sidebar to this article, posting side by side the major portions of each AG candidate's website blurbs about border security.)

The Republican Attorneys General Association ("RAGA") begins airing its new $1M+ ad campaign against Felecia Rotellini today.  The attack starts off by claiming that the Democratic nominee "doesn't support securing the border", after noting that "drug dealers, terrorists, violent criminals" are "crossing our border, threatening Arizonans."

The ad also claims that Rotellini "doesn't get" the danger because "she's never prosecuted a violent criminal", whereas GOP nominee Mark Brnovich gets it.

RAGA Arizona is going on the air more than two weeks before their Democratic counterparts are currently scheduled to.  Initial FCC filings showed that the start date would be October 6, but subsequent filings revealed the buy to be starting up today, and closer to the $1.6M budget ($300,000+/week for five weeks) previously discussed.

Arizona's Politics is not familiar with any credible reports of terrorists crossing the U.S.-Mexico border and/or threatening Arizona citizens.
