Black’s new TV ad touts ‘lanes, not trains’

Republican Diane Black’s new ad in the governor’s race touts her “lanes, not trains” approach to dealing with traffic congestion in Middle Tennessee.

The U.S. representative from Gallatin discusses her plan to complete the northern loop of I-840 around Nashville so trucks can be sent around the city rather than through it. She doesn’t mention her call to “double-stack” the interstates through the center of the state capital.

The ad is running in the Nashville media market.

Here’s the full transcript:

Black: “Stuck in traffic? Cross-country trucks are part of the problem. If we finish Interstate 840, we can send the trucks around the loop to make room for all of us who live here.”

Voiceover: “Diane Black’s transportation plan: More highway capacity for suburbs, speedy construction to get it done faster and no new taxes.”

Black: “We need more lanes, not trains. We must plan for the entire region, not just the city. As governor, that’s exactly what I’ll do.”
