New Corker radio spots

Has anyone heard the new Corker radio ads? They say the word "conservative" at least four times. People are on to Corker and he is desperate.

Mr. Oatney,
Where are the Ed Bryant ads? Is he out of money or what?

No-Bryant doesn't have near as much money as the other two. He has enough to launch an ad buy, but that would make his campaign suffer in the short term-I expect you'll begin to see Bryant ads in the next month or so as he raises more money )last I checked he had around $1.3 million. Corker has the most money by far (including his personal fortune as well as Haslam oil money), yet Bryant leads him in poll after poll!

Bryant volunteers are now conducting dor-to-door stops all over the State.

Mr. Oatney,
Thanks! I guess that since Corker has more money he just decided to get the jump on Bryant. It couldn't hurt.

Bryant will have plenty of money to be competitive, but it's smart to hold off on ads until closer to the primary. Obviously, Bryant can't run as many ads as Corker, but he's got advantages at the grassroots level that money can't buy. It's going to be an exciting race!

Mule;
Corker is trying to buy name recognition, and the Haslams are so desperate that they are using Pilot as the front to get it for Corker. It is almost comical.

JB;
I think Bryant is going to shock everyone. Last I checked, he continues to lead in Primary polls in spite of Corker's ad blitz. Frankly, the Corker ads are not all that convincing or effective.

However, it can't hurt Bryant to start running ads SOON-August really is just around the corner

Mr. Oatney,
I have to agree with you about Bryant doing something. I suspect that he not that well known outside of Conservative GOP circles. Van Hillary gets more conversation time (it's not good) at work than either Corker or Bryant.
