RNC targets Reid's 'lost' comment in new radio ad
WASHINGTON (CNN) -- The Republican National Committee is targeting Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nevada, for his recent comment that the Iraq war is 'lost' in a thirty-second radio ad to be broadcast on stations in Reid's home state.

Capt. Emory "Trip" Bellard, an Iraq war veteran, criticizes Reid in the ad, scheduled to hit the airwaves in Las Vegas and Reno this week, according to the RNC.

"Sen. Reid's remarks undercut the morale of our soldiers and undermine our troops on the ground," Bellard says in the ad. "Our troops in harm's way deserve better than to be treated like a political football by a Washington politician."

-- CNN Ticker Producer Alexander Mooney
