News release from Lamar Alexander campaign:
Lamar Alexander’s campaign today announced the launch of TV and radio ads featuring former presidential candidate and U.S. Senator Fred Thompson endorsing him for re-election to the U.S. Senate.
The ads, which begin airing Wednesday, feature Thompson saying, “Lamar Alexander is a conservative United States senator who has earned re-election. … Look at his record.” Thompson goes on to describe Alexander’s record as governor balancing the state’s budget and leaving it with zero road debt. Thompson also highlights Alexander’s strong record on gun rights as a senator and his endorsements from National Right to Life and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.
The Thompson ad follows the release of a TV ad about Alexander fighting against the Obama administration acting like a de facto national school board, a TV ad showing Alexander sparring with President Obama over Obamacare, an endorsement ad featuring former presidential candidate and Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee and a series of radio ads featuring community leaders across Tennessee.
