A major national union supporting Democrat Martha Coakley is taking out a massive TV ad buy that slams her Republican rival, Scott Brown, for his positions on abortion and climate change.

The ad taken out by the Service Employees International Union, will begin airing statewide tomorrow. The buy size is $685,000, one of the largest of the election.

“Before you vote for Senate, here’s a few things you should know about Scott Brown,” says a narrator in the 30-second spot…

…It marks another negative ad in a Jan. 19 special election that is garnering widespread national attention. Coakley last night took out an ad that went after Brown along the same line of attack.

Brown’s daughters this afternoon called on her to take it down and run a more positive campaign.
