The Hill reports:
Minnesota Senate candidate Richard Painter (D) released his first campaign ad this week, likening Washington to a “dumpster fire.”
Painter, who previously served as White House ethics lawyer under former President George W. Bush and switched political parties for the Senate bid, is first shown in the ad standing in front of a dumpster fire.
“Some people see a dumpster fire and do nothing but watch the spectacle,” Painter says. “Some are too scared to face the danger, or they think it will benefit them if they let it keep on burning.”
