North Carolina: Richard Hudson Begins Airing TV Ad
Posted at 12:01 a.m. on March 20, 2012
Sitting on a porch, Hudson introduces his bulldog, Hoover, at the beginning of the spot. He compares his pooch to Congress.
“Hoover here is a good watchdog,” Hudson says. “Our Congressman, Larry Kissell, he let Obama run up trillions in debt without barking one bit.
“Hoover consumes everything in sight,” Hudson adds, backed by jaunty music. “And Congress, same thing.”
Hudson ends the 30-second ad with his pitch: “If you want a conservative who guards your tax dollars, then I’m asking for your support.”
The ad will run in the district on cable stations through the end of the month backed by a $14,500 buy.
Hudson faces a number of serious contenders in the GOP primary on June 5 including neurosurgeon John Whitley, dentist Scott Keadle, state Rep. Fred Steen and former Winston-Salem City Councilman Vernon Robinson. Keadle won the endorsement of the Club for Growth on Monday.
