Laura Ruderman’s mom attacks daughter’s opponent, then stars in daughter’s ad

On the heels of news that Laura Ruderman’s mom financed a series of hit pieces on her opponent, Ruderman went up with her first TV ad … about her mother.

 

The soft biographical piece centers on a cancer cluster in Ruderman’s family, including her mother’s “dance” with cancer. But the timing is wacky. Ruderman’s campaign insists it knew nothing about Margaret Rothschild’s $115,000 PAC formed to kneecap Suzan DelBene, but the mom-daughter connection is tight enough to be the centerpiece of her first ad.

Rothschild’s PAC ads continue to roll in. A new mailer compares DelBene’s work at struggling startups Nimble Technology and drugstore.com to Mitt Romney’s career at Bain Capital. (“Suzan DelBene is like the Democratic version of Mitt Romney”).
