The race for the Republican nomination in Maine’s second congressional district is heating up, and the attack ads are beginning to roll out. Today, candidate Kevin Raye released this ad attacking his primary opponent Bruce Poliquin. While the claims of the ad were judged as “mostly true” by the Portland Press Herald, the “cute little baby” featured at the end has become the star of the ad.

Per Raye's staff, the baby is his great-great-nephew.
