McCain Airs New Ad In Virginia

Anita Kumar

Sen. John McCain, the presumptive Republican presidential nominee, began airing a new ad on national cable TV in key states, including Virginia.

The 30-second ad, entitled "Celeb," highlights the opposition of Sen. Barack Obama, the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee, to offshore drilling and proposals to raise taxes on energy sources that produce electricity.

"This ad shows a clear contrast between John McCain and Barack Obama on the issues important to Virginia voters,'' said Gail Gitcho, McCain's mid-Atlantic regional communications director.

"John McCain believes that lowering taxes is the best way to create jobs here in America. Barack Obama believes tax hikes are the solution to our economic problems,'' she said. "John McCain believes those have to be a part of a comprehensive solution that include renewables and new innovative energy sources. Barack Obama opposes nuclear power and additional drilling. John McCain will end the war but he believes we must come home in victory based on the conditions on the ground. Barack Obama supports an unconditional timetable for withdrawal in Iraq that has the real possibility of leading to a third Iraq war."
