The Darren White for Congress campaign responded to a misleading attack ad now being run by Martin Heinrich that says Darren White endangered the lives of police officers, and that police officers do not trust Darren White.

The new Darren White for Congress campaign ad contains an interview with the parents of Bernalillo County Sheriff's Deputy James McGrane, Jr., who was shot and killed, in the line of duty, in March 2006.

"Martin Heinrich's latest television ad that suggests I would endanger the lives of my police officers crosses the line, and shows that Martin will say and do anything to win this election," said Darren White.

White's Campaign Manager, Sara Lister added, "Martin Heinrich launched a shameless character attack and questioned Darren's commitment and fidelity to the safety and protection of his fellow officers. Our spot simply sets the record straight."

Darren has been endorsed by the Fraternal Order of Police, and the Albuquerque Police Officers' Association.

We've all seen a gazillion political ads. But that is a very moving, direct and powerful ad. How in the world does Heinrich respond?
