Let the games begin

Republican National Committee Chairman Michael Steele was in the Triad Monday afternoon showcasing  the RNC’s new cable television commercial that charges President Obama and House Speaker Pelosi are “experimenting with America.”  Steele told reporters he hopes the spot that will air in Greensboro and four other markets will win back unaffiliated voters.

Not to be outdone, North Carolina Democratic Party officials held their own press event Monday to release their new web ad critical of Republican U.S. Senator Richard Burr.

If you’re asking yourself, “Isn’t it a little early for campaign commercials?”

You’re right.

We’ve got 238 days until the November 2nd elections.

    The RNC ad touches the emotions of the viewer and the words evokes a sensation of dread pit in the stomach. The RNC ad will be effective. The NCDP ad won’t.
