Rep. Phil Gingrey, R-Ga., has debuted a new ad making fun of a spot from his Senate primary foe, businessman David Perdue, that portrays members of Congress as a pack of crying babies.
In Perdue’s ad, four crying babies wear shirts bearing the names of his four major opponents in the Senate race.
Gingrey, an OB-GYN, begins his own ad with a clip of Perdue’s ad, showing a baby meant to represent Rep. Jack Kingston, R-Ga., and a baby meant to represent Karen Handel, the former Georgia secretary of State.
In the spot, Gingrey dismisses the spot as too “clever” by half.
“You deserve better than politics as usual,” he says, speaking to the camera. “Having delivered over 5,200 babies, I understand, when it’s time, it’s time. And the time to stop Obama is now.”
