Republican lieutenant governor hopeful Pete Snyder has launched the first ad of the 2013 campaign with a radio spot that touts his business record and backing from Oliver North.
The 60-second spot is airing on conservative talk radio throughout the state, according to Snyder’s campaign. The length of the ad buy is undetermined, the campaign said.
The ad features a fictional couple, Sally and Harry, chatting about Snyder, a technology entrepreneur and former Fox news commentator. Their exchange goes like this:
Sally: Have you heard of Pete Snyder?
Harry: Tech businessman, right? Created a ton of jobs here?
Sally: Right. No surprise, Snyder’s a conservative Republican. But it says here Snyder is running for lieutenant governor.
Harry: Why would a successful business leader do that? He’s never been a politician.
Sally: Exactly. It sounds like Snyder is as fed up with politics as we are ... wants to shake things up in Richmond.
