Nunn debuts another ad in GA Senate race mentioning former President Bush, who backs Perdue


ATLANTA — Democrat Michelle Nunn of Georgia is out with another ad showing her with former President George H.W. Bush, who's asked her not to use him in her campaign for the state's open Senate seat.

Nunn's latest ad pushes back at attacks by Republican opponent David Perdue who's used a photo of her with President Barack Obama to show she'd support the president's agenda. In the ad, Nunn says Perdue fails to mention the photo was taken at an event honoring former President Bush and shows she can work with both Democrats and Republicans.

Bush has endorsed Perdue. Bush's spokesman Jim McGrath said Monday the ad was "disrespectful" after the Nunn campaign had been "clearly, repeatedly and consistently told that President Bush did not want them to use his photo."
