Weiland Releases “Incredibly Fast” Ads

Kevin Woster thinks Rick Weiland's new 15-second ads hit the mark. "In 15 seconds, Rick Weiland engages in ways that many much-longer political ads don’t," says Woster. "He’s having fun. Getting his message acrosss. Quickly."

Weiland takes an apt swipe at Mike Rounds's big-money beholdenness:

"The bad part about not having huge corporate donors is that I can only afford this fifteen-second commercial for U.S. Senate. The good part, unlike my opponent, I won't be working for them when I get there." Heck yeah!

Rick then peels off for more of his ongoing tour of the state:

Big campaign money is a great advantage; Weiland is doing his best to turn cash into a liability for Rounds.

    Once again great ads Rick! I know your in a hurry without the big money, to buy ads, to fly all over the state or be in a nice comfy custom painted/wrapped motorhome being chauffeured but please watch your speed in that little and humble minivan with the magnetic sign and be careful not to squeal the tires all the time or you might get ticketed. :)

    I do wish Rick would have a presser or another AD mentioning or related to what happened yesterday with the GOAC hearing.

    Really good stuff.

    Cute and clever. I give it an A. Gooooo Rick!

    It appears that however long or short Rick 's ads are that he is outspending every other candidate and still behind in the poles. He will have to get some of that east coast Democrat money to buy this senate seat.

    Greg the poles (sic) were done before he started running these ads. And he's not outspending Rounds, just fyi.

    Bill's right, Greg: search the FEC reports, and you'll find that, through June 30, Weiland's operating expenditures were $650,325, while Rounds's operating expenditures were $2,868,392.

    The ads are cute, but seem somewhat illogical and disconnected with the phrase "let's get big money out of politics." I don't see how a campaign premised on "vote for me because I don't have as much money as my opponent" will resonate with undecided voters.
