Graham Releases New TV and Radio Advertisements

COLUMBIA, SOUTH CAROLINA – U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham’s campaign today released new television and radio advertisements in advance of the June 10 Republican Primary. Both ads include supporting statements from presumptive Republican nominee for President John McCain.

In the TV ad McCain calls Graham, “a reformer who is willing to take a stand and tackle the tough issues. He’s guided by conservative principles – like appointing conservative judges and keeping taxes low.” In the radio ad, McCain notes that unlike some political leaders who refuse to tackle the tough problems facing our nation, Graham “won’t run from a political fight.”

In both ads, Graham also makes his case to South Carolina Republican voters.

“Our country has gone through some extraordinary times over the last few years,” says Graham. “I’ve tried to speak my mind, have the courage of my convictions, and offer solutions to the big problems facing our country.

I have been on the front lines of many political battles – from reducing taxes and cutting wasteful spending, to fighting for conservative judges and supporting our troops in the War on Terror,” concludes Graham. “As we move forward, I’ll continue promoting real, effective solutions – not just empty rhetoric.”

The thirty-second television spot, titled “Convictions,” can be viewed by clicking here.

The sixty-second radio spot, also titled “Convictions,” can be heard by clicking here.

Transcripts of both ads are below.
