McCain Campaign Links Obama To Rezko In New Ad

The McCain campaign has unveiled a stark new ad hitting Barack Obama for his connection to Tony Resko, his former fundraiser, who was convicted on corruption charges. The spot is a response to an earlier ad from the Obama campaign hitting McCain for not knowing how many homes he owns.

"Barack Obama knows a lot about housing problems," an announcer says in the spot. "One of his biggest fundraisers helped him buy his million dollar mansion. Purchasing part of the property he couldn't afford. From Obama, Rezko got political favors, including $14 million from taxpayers. Now, he's a convicted felon facing jail. That's a housing problem."
