On the heels of one of the gloomiest ads of the campaign season, GOP senate nominee Sharron Angle today released a positive ad focusing on her limited government credentials.
The ad features Angle talking to a small group of supporters in a brightly lit room with the requisite inspirational music running in the background. It’s quite the contrast with her last ad, which carried ominous music and images associated with the recession she holds her opponent, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, accountable for.
In her new ad, Angle vows to bring “liberty and freedom” to future generations instead of “debt and deficit.”
“Government is not the solution to the problem, government is the problem,” she says to the group, who nod in support.
The new ad is geared toward boosting her image with voters, particularly among moderate voters. The latest polls have her trailing Reid for the first time amid the sustained, well-funded attack he launched on Day 1 of the general election.
