Webb-Edgington's 4th District ad: 'These guys in Washington don't scare me one bit'
04/09/2012 10:57 AM
Alecia Webb-Edgington’s first ad that began airing in Northern Kentucky cable markets aims to highlight her background in the state police while serving as a contrast with “those guys” in Congress.
Webb-Edgington, a former Kentucky State Police major who has served in the state House since 2008, is the only woman in the seven-candidate GOP primary in the 4th Congressional District. And she indirectly highlights that at the beginning and end of the ad by referring to Congress as “those guys.”
“Give me a break. Those guys don’t know what tough is,” she said. To close the ad, she says, “These guys in Washington don’t scare me one bit.”
In addition to Webb-Edgington, the 4th District GOP primary includes Boone County Judge-Executive Gary Moore, Lewis County Judge-Executive Thomas Massie, lawyer Marcus Carey, business consultant Tom Wurtz, Oldham County School Board member and developer Walt Schumm and teacher Brian Oerther.
Carey ran one ad last month on cable, while Massie aired a commercial during the University of Kentucky’s NCAA Final Four games on March 31 and April 2 quoting a 2010 speech by retiring Congressman Geoff Davis.
