New Hampshire: Ann McLane Kuster Goes on the Air

Democrat Ann McLane Kuster has released her first television advertisement in her bid to oust Rep. Charles Bass (R) in the 2nd district.

The 30-second spot attempts to emphasize crossover appeal and personal frugality. According to a source, this is “a full buy on WMUR and in Boston.”

Although she describes her parents as “Republican when we were growing up,” the ad prominently describes her as a Democrat in the graphics. It is a positive ad and emphasizes a bipartisan approach to politics.

This is one of the most hotly contested races in the country. It is a rematch from their 2010 race, when Bass narrowly defeated Kuster. Roll Call rates this race as a Tossup.
