West sounds economic theme in second TV adby George Bennett | August 30th, 2010
The abstract “constitutional principles” and “core values” of Republican congressional challenger Allen West’s first ad have given way to an economic message in his second spot, released today.
Many Republicans believe continued economic anxieties and the absence of a promised “recovery summer” will be the key to GOP hopes of picking up congressional seats in 2010 from incumbents who have backed the Democratic economic plan like U.S. Rep. Ron Klein, D-Boca Raton. While West has been using his blog to rip Klein, the incumbent isn’t mentioned in this ad.
Text of Republican congressional candidate Allen West’s new TV ad:
“Working together, we can get South Florida’s economy moving in the right direction again.
“Let’s restore the control of Congress back to the American people.
“We have to close the floodgates of Government spending that threatens your future with a burdensome debt.
“Reform the health care law so we don’t have government coming between you and your doctor.
“We must keep more money in the hands of our families, and simplifying the tax code will help.”
