The industry-backed conservative group Americans for Prosperity -- which has fought against tobacco regulation and health care reform -- has sunk $100,000 into the 12th district special election with a television and radio ad campaign attacking Democrat Mark Critz on climate policy. (The figure also includes the cost of events and email blasts, the group said.) AFP demands that Critz sign a "no climate tax" pledge, referencing the cap-and-trade law that is none too popular in Western Pennsylvania. The bill passed the House last year with the support of Critz's boss, the late John P. Murtha.

AFP will bring hot air balloons to events in Johnstown and Washington, Pa., on Friday to further hammer home the point of, in the words of AFP president Tim Phillips, "the ballooning cost of taxing energy and killing jobs through a cap-and-trade scheme."

The TV ad is below.
