I think they did a great job with it. I think the video sequence of the ballot at the end is brilliant...

run it.. a lot.

And stick a "voted for bailout" sign beside each Price yard sign..

And maybe some that say..
The Price of the bailout?
Thank David Price

i think it's great
not too sure about the music, but maybe that sets it apart from usual campaign ads

Really good commercial. Showing Price along with McCain and Bush really drives the bailout message home.

You guys should change the music though, I can think of many reasons why that could cause problems.

I think it's great music. It's urban, which is atypical for a Republican. In Price territory, any move that makes Lawson an atypical Republican is a good one.

Other than the music, I'm a big fan of the ad. It ties Price to the Bush administration, it makes great use of video and text, and it's catchy - in large part due to the music. Go Lawson!

I don't know how to do one of those donation tickers, but somebody should set one up to fund this ad campaign because that's a cool commercial that would sway urban and suburban youth votes.

He's catching on - I'm telling you!

Awesome ad. :)

It's a very good ad, though I hope it's not the only one they run in the final weeks.

The commercial is a bit misleading because it has exaggerations like "calls were 1,000 to 1","Everyone opposed it".

I wish that was true but the polls say otherwise...I hope BJ doesn't lose credibility over this.
