Republican U.S. Senate candidate George Allen is out with a positive new TV ad laying out Allen’s vision for the future.
“America is at a crossroads. Will we continue to decline, or begin to ascend again?” the ad begins, in Allen’s voice.
“I envision a better future, where job creators are able to invest and grow, free of excessive regulations and taxes,” Allen ads. “Where we use America’s energy resources to improve our quality of life, college is accessible and affordable, and we stop the devastating defense cuts.”
Allen is locked in a neck-and-neck race with fellow former governor Timothy M. Kaine. The two will debate next Thursday in McLean.
“George Allen’s ad is a drastic departure from his decades-long record in politics and his re-election campaign proposals,” responded Kaine campaign spokeswoman Brandi Hoffine. “George Allen had the opportunity to address these issues the last time he served in the Senate. Instead, Virginians got a fiscal mess and an economic recession that we’re still recovering from.”
