Rep. Mann Stresses His 'Separation'

October 23, 1994| Washington Post

WASHINGTON — Clinton-phobia continues. Everyone has heard of negative ads, but the hot theme for some Democrats has become what the campaign of freshman Rep. David Mann (D-Ohio) calls "separation ads."

His campaign launched a series of ads that may make Bill and Hillary wonder if they have any friends in Mann's conservative Cincinnati district. The ads begin with rapid-fire references to Mann's votes against "Clinton's tax increase" and "Clinton's pork-barrel program" and to his opposition to the "Clinton health care plan." It concluded: "We always knew where he stood. Now they do too."

Mann said he may also have some ads showing his support of the President on some issues, such as the crime bill but for the moment, he said, he wants ads that "make clear we've been serving the district and going my separate way from the leadership."
