CD8 Air War: Giffords and Kelly Roll Out New TV Ads

Posted By on Mon, Sep 13, 2010 at 1:54 PM

Both Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords and GOP challenger Jesse Kelly unveiled new TV spots today.

Giffords has a testimonial from Cochise County veterinarian and rancher Dr. Gary Thrasher, a Republican who is supporting the incumbent Democrat. Team Giffords notes that in July, Thrasher "presented Gabrielle with the Arizona Cattle Growers Association’s annual award for public service in recognition of her work to secure the border."

Kelly's spot defends the Republican candidate from charges that he wants to privatize Social Security. Kelly, who calls Social Security a "Ponzi scheme," says he wants to preserve Social Security for the current recipients, but would offer younger workers a chance to invest at least a portion of their Social Security taxes in private accounts.
