Art Halvorson has spent the past few years aiming to get to Congressman Bill Shuster’s right.
The incumbent’s campaign is finishing with an ad attempting to head off any such move.
The thirty-second spot, titled “One”, asserts that Shuster is the true conservative in the race.
“When it comes down to it, Bill Shuster is our kind of conservative,” the narrator states. “That’s because he’s from here, born and raised in our community. Bill Shuster isn’t afraid to fight with either party for our values.”
The commercial went on to call Shuster “pro-gun and pro-life” and list his opposition to spending and President Obama’s programs.
In the narrator’s conclusion, Halvorson is alluded to as a faceless “desperate politician”.
“Desperate politicians attacking Bill Shuster don’t get it and they don’t get us,” the narrator concludes. “Bill Shuster fights for us every day, because he’s one of us.”
Shuster and Halvorson are fighting for the GOP nomination in the April 26th primary.
The 9th Congressional District consists of all or parts of Bedford, Blair, Cambria, Fayette, Franklin, Fulton, Greene, Huntingdon, Indiana, Somerset, Washington and Westmoreland Counties.
