WASHINGTON – A Washington advocacy group with close ties to the oil industry started running ads Thursday on South Carolina radio stations, targeting U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham for supporting taxes on carbon emissions.
The American Energy Alliance, a coalition of oil and natural gas companies, utilities and other energy-industry firms, launched the initiative in response to Graham’s recent collaboration with U.S. Sen. John Kerry, D-Mass., on cap-and-trade legislation.
The group’s ad is aimed at listeners of mainly conservative radio talk shows and will run through Oct. 30, Patrick Creighton, its communications director, said Thursday.
