Moran goes positive

Senate candidate Jerry Moran released a new television ad which uses the tactic many believe he should have started with: a positive message. The commercial reminds voters that Jerry has never moved to Washington and holds annual multi-county tours. It concludes by reminding voters to vote Tuesday- preferably for him.

The ad is a refreshing change from the previous negative attacks that have dominated the campaign thus far.


About Katie Stockstill-Sawyer

I am a city girl that is learning about life on the farm. I met and married a fourth-generation farmer, Derek. I am now a farmer's wife and country girl. The move has required a few changes and a lot of learning. But I wouldn't change my new life and all of the little lessons and surprises it provides.

  1. I also like this ad. I saw it on the interwebs. By Golly I’ll go out and vote for him.

  2. My, my. How we all have different perspectives and/or memories. At least in my area, I distinctly remember the initial Moran print, radio, and television ads—about 6 to 8 weeks before the Tiahrt campaign had money enough to begin their advertising. All of Moran’s ads were positive about his own merit, his own voting record, his belief and plans for the future if elected.
    Out of the box the Tiahrt advertising was filled with negative vitriol against Moran. Of course this would start the ball rolling for both campaigns—one has to first defend oneself and then use some comparisons of the opponent’s negatives once that door is opened. Even with that being said, the Moran’s camp has been tepid compared to the wild, constant “Votes with Pelosi” rages from the Tiahrt squad. I’ve done my research—and there’s been a dramatic difference of who has been LESS of what I want in a conservative in regards to HONESTY and CHARACTER—and it’s Todd Tiahrt.

    Unfortunately, we are still a gossipy nation that can too easily believe the worse—even from other politicans who have nothing but a self-serving ambition. Conservatives this year have been exclaiming this would be a different year—we were “awake” and now knew how we’d been duped through the years—no more would we accept the old style politics. Well, we’ll see who we really are the night of August 3rd, won’t we?

    By Golly, I’m voting for Jerry Moran—just like kslm1977—smart for his (her) young age! 🙂

  3. I would encourage you to research a little more because it was in fact Jerry who took the first negative swipe while Todd put up with it for a while. Even worse, Jerry puts a negative flyers on every seat at meeting at Kansas day and doesn’t even have the guts to show up and face Todd. This is the type of person you want in Congress? You want a person who raises taxes and doesn’t believe in parental consent? You want a person who can’t even admit when they raise taxes and votes against parental consent? You want a person that lies on litteraly every ad and even tells the KC folks a couple of days ago that he is the “victim of negative ads” and he claims that aren’t coming from his campaign? This is Jerry Moran. Instead of attacking Todd on the issues Jerry feels the need to personally attack Todd. This is negative campaigning. Todd brings ups Jerry’s record – this is not negative, this is the truth. It is unfortunate the Jerry has lied and has continually attacked Todd personally. And the fact is Jerry did vote with Pelosi – you need to look closer at his record. And if you want to speak of character, why did Tom Tancredo switch his endorsement to Todd – two reasons – 1) Jerry lied about his record and 2) Todd has a stronger record than Jerry. Also, just read the letter from Paul Moore, Jerry’s former campaign chief of staff. This letter from the so called “disgruntled” employee hits the nail on the head. This is the truth about who Jerry really is. Aug. 3 will be a victory party for Todd Tiahrt.
