Earlier this week the Brian Kennedy campaign began airing the District's first television commercial. Not surprisingly, his first ad is about illegal immigration, featuring his trip to the border.
Kennedy's ad, creatively titled "Border" highlights his plan to station 10,000 additional border patrol agents at the border, as he strolls along the banks of the Rio Grande.
Though the illegal immigration issue is a serious problem, this ad is a bit funny too. I would challenge anyone who's ever met Brian Kennedy to tell me that the first word they would use to discribe him is "cowboy".
Somehow it just doesn't really fit in with the rest of his career experience. If we add this to his resume, it would read something like:
Campaign Manager of local, state, and national races
Chairman, Republican Party of Iowa
The ad can be viewed HERE.
The question is, is this an effective ad for the 1st District of Iowa, or the 28th District of Texas? Do the Fox News watchers in Iowa see this as a big problem here, or is Brian Kennedy blowing his already limited resources on a short-lived or irrelevant-to-Iowa issue?
