If you liked our first "Who's at the Door" TV ad, you'll love our new radio spots!
Released today, these two ads reflect an uncomfortable truth that House Majority Leader Eric Cantor would rather ignore: Wayne Powell is an independent-minded, fiscally-conservative Democrat who just might be your kind of Republican.
The radio spots feature two conservative neighbors discussing the upcoming Congressional election. While not a fan of traditional Democrats, the two Republican men decide that party just isn't as important as common-sense leadership, and they agree that Wayne Powell is the man for the job.
The content of the radio spots is indicative of a wider trend that we have been encountering for months, from Culpeper to Chesterfield. Whether its speaking to voters over the phone, in their homes, at events or even on the street, the response is often the same: Eric Cantor is unpopular with folks of all political stripes.
As Wayne's campaign manager Christian Rickers put it, "These ads reflect what we are hearing all over the 7th District. Not only independents but Republicans as well are not happy with Cantor. They're telling us that he represents greed and not them."
Eric Cantor has tried and failed to paint Wayne as an unthinking liberal, but the people of the 7th District are smarter than that. They value results and engagement over cynical spin and party loyalty.
After all, as we've said before, this campaign isn't about red or blue, it's about red, white and blue.
The two ads will air in heavy rotation across the district. Listen to them here, then share them with your friends on Facebook and Twitter.
