The second round of television ads released by U.S. Sen. Chuck Grassley’s re-election campaign hits the airwaves today with 30-second spots highlighting his work to draft the Medicare prescription drug legislation and a take on his everyday efforts to keep in touch to represent constituents.
“The ads focus on Grassley’s record of results and his commitment to use a variety of approaches to keep in touch with Iowans,” said campaign manager Bob Renaud. “Both ads stick with factual, straightforward themes and they contain a common thread: Chuck Grassley works hard for Iowans.”
The 30-second spot “He Wrote the Bill” notes that Grassley authored the Medicare bill to cover prescription drugs for senior citizens.
In that ad, Grassley says, “We had to compromise to get it passed. It’s really helped people but there’s more to do – like the same drug shouldn’t cost more here than in Canada. We beat the drug companies before. We’ll beat them again.”
The second 30-second ad, entitled “Twitter,” begins with two women speaking in whispered tones. “I heard Chuck Grassley has a twitter,” the first woman intones. The second woman replies gravely, “Oh. Can it be cured?”
Grassley then appears on the screen, saying, “Oh, not that kind. I like to use new technologies like Twitter and Facebook just to keep in touch – and meetings in 99 counties every year. I’ll tweet, I’ll text, I’ll do whatever it takes. I work for you.”
