Palin Endorsee Karen Handel’s First TV Ad for Georgia Runoff Election
Posted by Dr. Fay on July 29, 2010
Jim Galloway at the AJC’s Political Insider reports on Karen Handel’s first TV ad for her runoff election in Georgia:
Republican candidate for governor Karen Handel makes use of Sarah Palin’s endorsement in her first TV ad in the Republican runoff for government – which also condemns rival Nathan Deal as “a corrupt relic of Washington D.C.”
“One carries a purse, the other carries baggage,” the 30-second ad begins.
The TV spot follows on the heels of an AJC report of federal grand jury interest in a meeting called by Deal in the hope of preserving his business with the state.
Handel spokesman Dan McLagan says the ad is targeted at metro Atlanta, and describes the airtime buy as “big.”
It’s also the first major use that Handel’s been able to make of the Palin endorsement – which arrived late in the primary, after the former secretary of state’s slim finances had already been committed.
Male voiceover: One carries a purse. The other carries baggage.
One whom Sarah Palin says has cut government, and is the true conservative.
Or the other, who added trillions to our national debt.
One a conservative reformer. One a corrupt relic of Washington D.C.
Karen Handel is Georgia’s strong conservative. Impeccable integrity. Our thrilling, vibrant future. Karen Handel. Bring it on.
The ad by Fred Davis incorporates the black, white and red tones of Handel’s single “Lipstick” ad in the GOP primary.
