Cal Cunningham takes the attack right to Republican rival Richard Burr in his latest ad. His first tv spot, launched earlier this week, introduced Cal to voters in media markets across the state. This ad continues his consistent theme of attacking Richard Burr for the terrible votes he has cast that have shipped North Carolina jobs overseas.
Those who watched the televised debate on Wednesday will note the common thread in this refrain. Cal held up a notepad with the number "18" on it during his first response that evening -- signaling the total number of votes Burr took that harmed our economy and left millions of North Carolinians without incomes or insurance.
With this new ad, Cunningham shows that he is not afraid to take on Richard Burr and the special interests to which he is beholden. He also asks viewers to check out his website to see his comprehensive plan to create new jobs, invest in education and reform harmful trade deals.
Cunningham's media blitz is paying early dividends. Folks on Facebook and Twitter are reporting constantly about seeing his ads in cities and towns across the state. And, his ideas for working together and moving our economy forward are surely resonate with voters from Murphy to Manteo who still feel the pain of this recession.
It's a very positive message for change and accountability -- something all voters are hungry for right now.
