Shaw Campaign Releases First TV Ad: “Eden”

Monte Shaw’s congressional campaign release its first television ad this week. The ad, featuring Shaw’s seven-year-old daughter Eden, focuses on the debt and federal spending. Monte Shaw is running for the Republican nomination in Iowa’s Third District race.

Below is a look at the ad, as well as the text of the email sent by the Shaw campaign to supporters:

We’re excited to announce the release of our first television ad today. The ad focuses on restraining spending and promoting pro-growth policies, issues that are the crucially important to our primary for the Third Congressional District.

In the ad, my daughter Eden, 7, asks for a bigger allowance to help pay for her $55,000 share of the national debt.

Eden says: “When I was born, my share of the national debt was $29,000. Now it’s $55,000. Fifty-five THOUSAND? I can’t even count that high. Dad, I’m going to need a bigger allowance.”

I am running for Congress because this debt isn’t fair to our kids. Pro-growth policies combined with spending restraint will put us back on the right track.”
