Now, one prominent northeast Louisiana Democrat is even breaking ranks with his own party over the ad.
Winnsboro mayor Jack Hammons says he'll cross party lines and publically support Jindal in the October 20th governor's election--just because the Democrats' ad was so misleading.
"I have quietly supported Bobby in the past but when the ad came out attacking his Christian beliefs it angered me enough that I just had to come out and be vocal and urge others to vote for him," said Hammons.
Hammons isn't the only Democrat criticizing the ad.
"I think that is a good indication that this will be the biggest political backfire this state has ever seen," said Hammons.
"I thought I had seen everything in Louisiana politics. I never imagined the Democratic Party would attack me for my Christian faith," said Jindal.
Democrats hoped their aggressive ad strategy would help derail the republican front runner, but if Democrat Jack Hammons' response is any guide, the strategy may be backfiring.
