Radio Free Van Hollen
The Van Hollen campaign is on the air, launching a 60 second radio ad in Milwaukee, Madison, Green Bay, Racine, Eau Claire, Sheboygan, Oshkosh, Wausau and La Crosse, according to a Van Hollen press release. The campaign has announced they are spending $36,000 on their ad buy.
The ad touches on a little of everything: experience, law enforcement endorsements, terrorism, gang violence, deport illegal aliens, Tommy Thompson endorsement, corruption. The only thing missing from the ad is Van Hollen’s shoe size and the cranberry marsh.
I’m assuming this is the introduce name recognition ad campaign, to be followed by more specific ads on issues. Surprisingly, I couldn’t find the audio of the ad at the Van Hollen website.
