Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) keeps things simple in her first TV ad in Iowa, which her presidential campaign says starts airing there today.
— Remind folks you're from the state. Check.
— Let them know a little about yourself. Check.
— Vow to fight "wasteful" spending. Check.
— Make clear you opposed the president's economic stimulus plan. Check.
Here's the script:
"As a descendant of generations of Iowans, I was born and raised in Waterloo.
"As a mom of five, a foster parent, and a former tax lawyer, and now a small business job creator, I know we can't keep spending money that we don't have.
"That's why I fought against the wasteful bailout ... against the stimulus.
"I will not vote to increase the debt ceiling."
