The ad time was bought by a group called Americans for Job Security. It also has bought up to $1 million worth of late-campaign media in New Hampshire, $480,000 in Missouri, and $625,000 in Colorado.

Sound familiar? Americans for Job Security spent $800,000 here two years ago on ads boosting Gorton and attacking Democratic Senate nominee Maria Cantwell.

Who are Americans for Job Security? The group laughs off media requests for its contributor list. What we do know is that it is tax-exempt. It was founded in 1997 with $1 million in seed money from the American Insurance Association and $1 million from the American Forest and Paper Association.
