(What follows is a transcript of a new thirty-second campaign ad released Tuesday, Oct. 24 by the Ashcroft-for-Senate campaign.)
(John Ashcroft, R-MO, speaking): In times of tragedy, we draw strength from our families and the values we share.
Years of experience have taught me the values that keep families strong are worth fighting for every day: Our responsibility to give every child a quality education;
Compassion for families who struggle to pay the bills and need relief from high taxes;
Our duty to protect Social Security and Medicare for our seniors.
Experience and values can build prosperity for every Missouri family.
