Castor Unveils First Ad
Hillsborough County Commissioner and District 11 Congressional candidate Kathy Castor has her first ad up and running.
The ad (available here) is decent stuff. It emphasizes local issues and her accomplishments on the county commission. In an evironment where everyone (Republican and Democrat) is running on the platform that they will not be a rubber stamp for President Bush, Castor is playing on that trend, but with a local twist. She talks about protecting Hillsborough residents against utility companies (energy companies are an excellent villain) and against Republicans when they tried to cut healthcare.
Overall, it's a solid ad. Not very creative, but her lead is such that it doesn't have to be. It's very unlikely than any of her opponents will be able to compete with her on the air, so if she can run this on a decent buy for the last four weeks before the primary, Castor may have this race well and locked up.
