Christopher Shays, the former long-time congressman from the Fourth District, has cut a commercial for state Sen. Dan Debicella, who’s challenging first-term Democratic Jim Himes. Debicella, the Republican, is releasing the 30-second ad today, entitled “Independent Voice.” Debicella is hoping to persuade unaffiliated voters, who make up about 40 percent of the district.
The text of the ad follows, but see if this url works:http://www.youtube.com/user/DebicellaforCongress?feature=mhum
CONGRESSMAN CHRISTOPHER SHAYS ON CAMERA:
TO REPRESENT THE PEOPLE OF FAIRFIELD COUNTY IN CONGRESS, YOU HAVE TO BE INDEPENDENT.
VOTING WITH NANCY PELOSI 94 PERCENT OF THE TIME DOES NOT MEET MY TEST FOR INDEPENDENCE, AND I CAN’T IMAGINE IT MEETS YOURS.
DAN DEBICELLA IS THOUGHTFUL, A GOOD LISTENER, AND I BELIEVE HE WILL AN INDEPENDENT, COMMON-SENSE VOICE IN CONGRESS.
THE BOTTOM LINE FOR ME, DAN WILL PUT YOU AND YOUR FAMILY FIRST.
I’M DAN DEBICELLA AND I APPROVED THIS MESSAGE.
