Wulsin Radio Ad Featuring Ben ‘Cooter’ Jones

Wulsin takes on Schmidt in rural counties with new ad campaign

CINCINNATI, OH -- A new country music radio ad from the Wulsin campaign appeals directly to voters in Jean Schmidt’s traditional rural-voter base.

“No More ‘Boss Hogg’ Politics” features former Georgia Congressman and popular Nashville icon Ben Jones, also known as ‘Cooter’ from the television show, “The Dukes of Hazzard”.

Jones tells voters not to listen to Schmidt’s attacks. “Consider the source,” he says, defending his friend Congressman Jack Murtha and standing up for Victoria Wulsin, “Victoria ain’t about to raise your taxes and take your guns”.

“Victoria Wulsin would be a better representative than Jean Schmidt for all the voters in the 2nd District” says campaign manager Mary Huttlinger. “Victoria has worked in the very rural health programs that this Congress wants to cut, and she knows what’s important to this community.”

This is the first of two new ads reaching out to voters who may have doubts about Jean Schmidt, but have yet to seriously consider Victoria Wulsin.

“We’re asking all voters in the District to look beyond Jean Schmidt’s angry rhetoric and consider which candidate really stands for what’s important: good jobs with decent wages and keeping their families healthy and safe.”
