I like the commercial; it’s straight-forward, well-done, does not mention Bryant’s opponents by name, and takes a stance on something that most voters would naturally agree with. The “Transparency” and “Advanced Technology” graphics were well-placed, too, in my opinion. The only problem I saw with the ad was “Lobbyist” instead of “Lobbyists,” but that’s not the end of the world (and is much, much better than, say, “Lobbyist’s” or a random country singer in the middle of the ad).
In addition to the ad, the Bryant campaign also released a statement further explaining that the candidate’s stance on gifts from lobbyists is in direct contrast with some other politicians’.
“Some elected officials are comfortable accepting gifts from lobbyists — everything from free dinners, to expensive golf outings and even expense-free trips out of state. Some of those same politicians have no problem in running up outlandish expense reports and then demanding that taxpayers reimburse them.”
A reference to Monty Davenport? That’s for you to decide, I suppose.
