(Newser) – A Denver TV station has dropped a GOP congressional candidate’s ad, saying it got its facts “blatantly wrong." Cory Gardner’s ad attacks Democratic Congresswoman Betsy Markey for voting for the 2010 budget, when in fact she didn’t—Ed Markey of Massachusetts did. The Gardner campaign has made a corrected ad that the TV station will run, the Huffington Post reports.

"Gardner should be ashamed of himself and should apologize to the people of the Fourth Congressional District for lying to them," the Betsy Markey campaign said in a statement.
