Over the weekend, the Republican National Committee launched their 10-day, $3 million campaign to tout John McCain’s energy policy with this ad:

“Record gas prices, a climate in crisis. John McCain says solve it now,” says the ad. “With a balanced plan — alternative energy, conservation, suspending the gas tax and more production here at home. He’s pushing his own party to face climate change.”

It goes on to hit Barack Obama for not supporting McCain’s “gas-tax holiday” plan or his calls for more nuclear power and offshore drilling. The ads will run in four key swing states through July 15: Ohio, Wisconsin, Michigan, and Pennsylvania.
