Wargotz hits the airwaves at last
Republican Senate underdog Eric Wargotz is launching his first TV ad of the general election campaign, a 30-second spot that portrays incumbent Democrat Barbara A. Mikulski as Maryland's public enemy number one.
"At some point, Barbara Mikulski stopped working for us and started working against us," says the narrator. The ad, featuring a sledgehammer smashing a brick wall, lays out a list of disasters that occurred "on Senator Barb's watch." They include the health care "fiasco," mushrooming federal debt and the current foreclosure mess. The ad concludes with Wargotz delivering the disclaimer with a promise to "build Maryland up, not tear it down."
With Wargotz trailing by roughly 30 points in the polls and early voting already underway, it's hard to imagine anything that can turn the tide decisively for him at this stage.
