Montana: Jon Tester’s Fifth TV Ad Focuses on Ethics

Sen. Jon Tester (D) today launched his fifth television ad of the campaign — a positive spot that highlights his ethics record.

The ad features three voters touting their support for Tester, including a retired federal prosecutor, a teacher and former Rep. Pat Williams (D-Mont.). It’s a follow-up to Tester’s 2006 campaign, which focused on the ethics issues of then-Sen. Conrad Burns (R). However, the ad mistakenly tells viewers to go to TesterEthicsRules.com for more information. The actual address is TesterEthicsRecord.com.

“Jon Tester promised us he’d be a different kind of Senator, and he is,” retired federal prosecutor Sherry Matteucci says in the ad.

The Tester campaign spent about $60,000 to air the ad on broadcast and cable, according to a Democratic source who tracks ads.

Tester is facing Rep. Denny Rehberg (R) in the general election. Roll Call rates the race a Tossup.
