The Club for Growth hammers Rep. Tom Udall (D-NM) on a host of hot-button issues in a new ad launched today. The ad criticizes Udall, New Mexico's Democratic Senate candidate, for opposing offshore oil-drilling, while supporting eminent domain and the estate tax.

The ad weaves it all together this way: "For Tom Udall, if it's private property, take it; if it dies, tax it; but if it's American oil, leave it in the ground. Tell liberal Tom Udall that American freedom comes from American resources."

Meanwhile, in July the Club for Growth's 527 took in $250,000 from Rex Sinquefield of the Show-Me Institute and $95,000 from Robert Levy of the Cato Institute, among other donations.
