Tea Party Express's Delaware Ads (Audio)

More

Here's an early look at the ads Tea Party Express will run in Delaware backing Christine O'Donnell in the state's Sept. 14 Republican Senate primary.


Here's the audio of a rough cut of one of the TV ads Tea Party Express will run: TPX TV ad 1 rough cut - audio.MP3

Script:

In 2008, the American Conservative Union ranked Mike Castle as one of the most liberal Republicans in Congress, giving him a score of just 28 out of 100. Delaware Republicans deserve better. That's why the Tea Party Express and Mark Levin support commonsense conservative Christine O'Donnell for Senate. O'Donnell opposed the bailouts and Obama's massive deficit spending, and she strongly supports repealing Obama's health care scheme.

And here's audio of another TV ad Tea Party Express is working on: TPX TV ad 2 rough cut - audio.MP3

Script:

Mike Castle is so liberal he voted for Barack Obama's agenda nearly 60 percent of the time. He voted for the bailouts. He voted for the anti-business cap-and-trade. He supports in-state tuition for illegal aliens. And he even opposes repealing Obama's health care scheme. That's why the Tea Party Express and Mark Levin support commonsense conservative Christine O'Donnell for Senate.

The group says it will try to spend almost $250,000 before Sept. 14 to back O'Donnell over moderate Republican Congressman Mike Castle, who has long been the frontrunner in this race.

Tea Party Express' ads are simple, and the production value isn't anything to write home about, but they've worked before, in Nevada and most recently in Alaska. The group will try to recreate the magic in two weeks.
