GOP tracker following Dem's AG candidate

AL.com reports: The attorney general's race heated up last week as a national Republican political action committee made clear they would continue tracking Democratic candidates around Alabama. ...

Hubbard's campaign took advantage of the opportunity to "track the tracker." The Hubbard campaign even got pictures of the tracker's ID, which lists him as a photographer for "America Rising LLC."

The America Rising PAC is a GOP opposition-research firm that employs trackers to follow Democrats and report back with any potentially embarrassing statements.

Politico reported the PAC was founded by former Mitt Romney campaign manager Matt Rhoades and former Republican National Committee research director Joe Pounder. The group operates like a news website, posting videos and hoping they go viral on their own. It appears some of the videos are also shared from other sites -- anything that achieves the PAC's goals to embarrass Democrats. -- Democrats, attorney general candidate Joe Hubbard get their party crashed by video tracker sent by Republican PAC | AL.com
