VoteVets on the Air Against Jim Talent

Remember VoteVets, the group that produced this powerful ad that has so far run in the Virginia, Pennsylvania and Montana Senate races?

Now they're up on the air with tan almost identical ad running against Jim Talent, Missouri's freshman Republican Senator. It's not a huge ad buy; as best I can tell it's only about $50,000 worth of television time. Yet the message is a powerful one, one that can resonate with voters of all political stripes. So if you want to help keep this ad on the air in Missouri, which may hold the key to the Democrats retaking the Senate this fall, click here to offer your support to VoteVets.

I would like to hear if the stations in VA and PA and elsewhere picked this up and gave "free" advertising during the local news.

Anyone?

I'm assuming they're taking out the erroneous line about the Vietnam War from the Talent ad, like they did for the Burns ad.

That's gotta be my favorite ad so far this cycle.

I LOVE the ad, but think they could have found a soldier with a southern accent to do it.  They are running this ad in Virginia, Missouri, and Montana from what I understand.  

The featured soldier would be much more effective if people felt like he was "from here."
