Republican Rep. Todd Tiahrt announced Monday he is running a statewide campaign commercial in Kansas’ U.S. Senate race. The ad puts him up on the air more than a year out from the potentially contentious August 2010 primary race.
The commercial focuses criticism on President Obama and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi , D-Calif., for supporting a stimulus plan that hasn’t improved the economy, job losses or home foreclosure rates, the ad argues.
“Todd Tiahrt said the bailouts and stimulus were wrong from the start. Now Tiahrt’s fighting to stop it,” a voiceover states in the ad.
