Diane Black ad attacks Bill Lee and Randy Boyd as "too moderate."

Above is another ad from Diane Black that attacks both Bill Lee and Randy Boyd as "too moderate."

I would be more favorably inclined to support Bill Lee if he had not donated money to Megan Barry's campaign for mayor.  I think it is fair game to point that out.  However, before disqualifying Lee due to this contribution, I think one should ask themselves if they applied the same standard to Donald Trump.  Before becoming the Republican nominee for president, Trump had made political campaign contributions to the Obama campaign and to Hillary Clinton, Harry Reid, Chuck Schumer and Edward Kenndy and other Democrats (link).

While I think the criticism of Lee for making a contribution to Megan Barry is fair, I am not impressed by the overall tone of this ad.  This does not cross the line but is getting close to mud slinging.
