Democratic presidential nominee Barack Obama has denounced the recent ads run by 9th District congressional candidate Nikki Tinker. The ads, which link Cohen to the KKK and claim he is keeping children from praying in school, have drawn national attention in recent days, and have also been denounced by EMILY's List, a PAC that is Tinker's largest campaign contributor.

Obama's statement: "These incendiary and personal attacks have no place in our politics, and will do nothing to help the good people of Tennessee," Obama said. "It's time to turn the page on a politics driven by negativity and division so that we can come together to lift up our communities and our country."
