Dodd Goes On Air with Ad Praising His Work on Credit Card Legislation

Connecticut Sen. Christopher J. Dodd’s first television ad of the 2010 cycle went live Friday, but it is President Obama, rather than the embattled five-term senator, who is the star of the 30-second spot.

Hoping to capitalize on a “shout-out” the popular president gave Dodd for his work on an overhaul of credit card companies’ practices (PL 111-24), the ad features images from the bill’s signing ceremony and audio of Obama talking about the “common-sense reform” it enacted.

Dodd, Obama goes on to say, “has been a relentless fighter to get this done.” The ad ends with the claim that the Democrat is “fighting back for us.”
