Democratic gubernatorial candidate Brian Moran will launch his first radio ad tomorrow, according to sources to familiar with his strategy.

The ad will target African-American voters in Hampton Roads. In the ad, former delegate Mary Christian of Hampton praises Moran for his service.

"As someone who served side-by-side with Brian for more than a decade, I can tell you personally that he's always been there and will always be there for us," said Christian, who in 1985 was elected the first African-American delegate from Hampton since Reconstruction. "Brian Moran grew up working class and he knows what it means to struggle."

Moran's decision to launch a radio campaign comes six weeks after Terry McAuliffe, also a candidate for the nomination, begain airing radio and television ads in Hampton Roads. McAuliffe's ads have also largely been targeted at black voters.
