Blunt to begin airing television campaign ads

Gov. Matt Blunt’s campaign plans to begin running television ads next week, aimed at touting his accomplishments during his first year and a half in office and are continuing that same message, said John Thompson, media consultant for the Republican’s campaign.

Thompson said Blunt is just trying to tell Missourians about the good things his administration has done and that the ads would focus on Blunt’s efforts to increase funding for education and create jobs.

The ads follow a series of radio spots that aired earlier this summer. But in contrast to many candidates with yard signs and presence in newspapers and over the airwaves this time of year, Blunt isn’t on the ballot this fall.
