Omaha, NE -- Tom White's campaign for Congress in Nebraska's 2nd District went up with its first TV ad today on districtwide broadcast and cable.
The 30-second spot highlights Tom's independence, and opens with him speaking directly to voters about how the debt that both parties have created is just "wrong." It introduces Tom as someone who worked his way through school doing construction jobs, and as a state Senator helped pass the largest tax cut in Nebraska history and voted to cut spending to balance the budget.
