"Depending on who he's talking to, he's varying his position on this monumental legislation. He takes a different position depending on who he's talking to," says Riser. He's referring to his opponent Vance McAllister.

But the Vance McAllister Campaign disagrees. Spokesman Josh Robinson says McAllister opposes the Affordable Care Act, known as Obamacare, but is realistic about the repeal process.

"The year that Vance is going to serve, before we take back the U.S.Senate next November, we want to systematically take apart Obamacare. Take apart every bad piece of it that we can, piece by piece. Until we elect Republicans to the U.S. Senate, have a majority in the Senate, and then can fully repeal Obamacare," says Robinson.

The McAllister Campaign says folks should care less about the ad and more about why Riser is attacking their candidate.

"Vance is out there talking about his message and what he thinks this race is about and the issues that are actually affecting this district and Neil Riser has decided to put 100-percent of his dollars that he has raised behind a message that is 100-percent attacking Vance, that doesn't really seem like the position of confidence that he was in three months ago," says Robinson.

But Riser says the name-calling is going both ways. He tells us the term "career politician" has been splashed on his campaign and he doesn't appreciate it.

"My career is running my business and not being a politician. Since I've been elected, my record shows I've been anything but a part of the establishment. I fought the establishment on major issues during my term. For example, labor reform and dismantling the housing authority, voting against the debt ceiling and the budget," says Riser.

And while chameleon and career politician aren't the worst labels we'll see in politics, the only title these two men want is 'congressman' come November 16th.

Early voting is continues through this Saturday.
