Just about 24 hours before Sen. Tim Kaine hits the stage in the only vice-presidential debate, the GOP is shifting its sights away from his running mate and toward him with a new ad.
It hits Kaine on the defendants he represented as an attorney and a commutation Kaine granted while he was governor of Virginia. The GOP and one of its spokesmen retweeted (and eventually deleted) articles on the ad that deemed it a "Willie Horton-style attack."
