With election day less than three weeks away, more and more campaign commercials are popping up on television, the radio and online.

Republican U.S. Senate candidate Pat Toomey and Democrat Joe Sestak are both airing spots attacking each other's record. So, it seemed logical to me and Capitol Bureau Chief Scott Detrow to turn to our Real Life | Real Issues undecided voters panel in week two of our conversations. We wanted to see what Nasir Emadi, Carolyn McNamara and Megan Barto think of some of these campaign ads. It's part of WITF's Election 2010 coverage.
