Latest Bredesen TV ad trumpets record as governor

Press release from Phil Bredesen campaign

NASHVILLE, Tenn. — The Bredesen for Senate campaign tomorrow (Thursday) will began airing a new TV spot statewide, highlighting Phil Bredesen’s economic-development record and his plan to use Tennessee’s success as a road map for how he’ll approach economic policies in the U.S. Senate.

The 30-second spot reminds voters that, during Bredesen’s time as governor, Tennessee created more than 200,000 new jobs and generated more than $34 billion in new business investments. Bredesen worked with U.S. and transnational carmakers to expand Tennessee’s automotive industry, including bringing to the state Nissan’s North American headquarters and Volkswagen’s only North American assembly plant. On his watch, Site Selection magazine in 2008 designated Tennessee as the most competitive state for economic development.

Speaking directly into the camera in a manufacturing facility, Bredesen says:

“Tennessee needs to show Washington how to do this. I’m applying for the job.”

The Bredesen for Senate campaign is also airing the spot “Ought to Do” on digital platforms, including Facebook, Youtube, Instagram and Twitter– highlighting how Bredesen views the role of a U.S. Senator: working across party lines to get things done. These two spots will continue to allow Governor Bredesen to reach Tennessee voters in all corners of the state with a clear message online and on TV, contrasting his refreshingly bipartisan track-record with the hyper-partisan gridlock of Washington.
