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.”
