The defining issue in the race for attorney general? Gunner DeLay would have you believe it’s people of the same sex kissing on each other. And marryin’. His latest TV ad has folks buzzing about all the sex Gunner is putting on the airways. Don’t let A$a’s kids see it.

UPDATE: Delay’s campaign today sent a press release about the commercial, which includes the text of the ad.. (They didn’t send it to the Arkansas Times, though. We used to be on their distribution list, but now we’re not. Wonder why.)

“This issue is about protecting traditional families in Arkansas,” DeLay said in the press release (which is available after the jump). “The New Jersey decision rendered this week shows that this battle is far from over. My hope for the families of Arkansas is the voters recognize what is at stake in this election.”

The response from the campaign of his Democratic opponent, Dustin McDaniel:

DeLay doesn’t have enough money to air the ad more than two or three times, so he’s trying to make a story out of it.

“The people of Arkansas do not need an attorney general who lies with a straight face,” Rep. McDaniel said.  “I believe marriage is between one man and one woman, and I will always defend our constitution.  My opponent knows he is losing, and he is willing to lie about my record and my values in his last hail Mary effort,” McDaniel added.

“I thought Asa using kids in his ad was bad until I saw Gunner’s ad. The people won’t fall for it,” McDaniel concluded.
