Both Mayor Tony Benavides and Sen. Virg Bernero's campaigns note the tone of the Lansing mayoral campaign growing more negative, but both accuse the other of starting the negative trend.

Bernero put out an ad spoofing the National Enquirer. In it the ad infers Benavides has told tall tales about Bernero's political records.

Benavides is launching ads attacking what they call a questionable voting record for Bernero.

A spokesperson for Benavides calls the information all factual and not negative.

Bernero says the same of the Inquirer-like ad as well.
