McCain Ad Blasts Obama For Ties To Former Fannie Mae CEO Jim Johnson

The McCain campaign is continuing to hammer Barack Obama over his connections to Fannie Mae executives, which he laid out in his speech this morning, this time releasing a new national TV ad targeting former CEO Jim Johnson

It’s interesting that the second ad on the Fannie Mae issue goes after Jim Johnson, whose connections to Obama are much more substantial than they ever were for Franklin Raines, the target of the first ad. Then again, as we noted yesterday, Raines is black and Johnson is white.
