Mario as mini-Bush

Here's the latest campaign mailer courtesy of the local 527 that's targeting Lincoln and Mario Diaz-Balart for reelection. One South Florida Media Fund says it has blanketed the district with the mailer.

Minildb Voters in the South Florida races say they're tuning out some of the nastier ads in the congressional races -- including one that superimposes a photograph of Raul Martinez over a truck dumping garbage. Mario Diaz-Balart has repeatedly tried to link challenger Joe Garcia to Enron: ''It's outrageous that he's allowed to say anything he wants about me,'' Garcia says. Martinez says it's time for a truth-in-advertising law.

Other independent groups active in the race: the National Right to Life PAC which reports dropping $$ on mailers and radio ads for the D-B's and Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen.
