Heather Wilson's New Ad

Republican U.S. Senate candidate Heather Wilson released a new 30-second campaign ad this morning.

Unlike her previous one, which stressed her military backgroun, this isn't a biographical spot. As you can see below, this actually talks about what Wilson says (and few disagree) is the overriding issue of the campaign, the economy.

There's no direct attack on her Democratic opponent Martin Heinrich. In fact there's no mention of her opponent,

Wilson says, "If you think the way to bring jobs back ... is by growing government, growing debt and growing Washington control of our economy, then I'm probably not your candidate." (Perhaps you could argue she's implying here that if you believe those things, Heinrich is your candidate.)

Instead she advocates traditional Republican solutions -- keeping taxes and energy costs low and "freezing job-killing regulations."

Heinrich released his first post-primary ad early this week. You can see it HERE

Speaking of ads, here's a look at one of the recent Sierra Club ads attacking Wilson. CLICK HERE.
