Last week wind energy executive Michael Skelly (D, TX-7) announced that he has $1 million cash on hand and was ready to give incumbent John Culberson (R) a real fight for Western Harris County.
This week Skelly released his first TV ad.
Take the jump, and watch this 30 second ad.
The ad does an excellent job of introducing Skelly in a personal way to this Houston district. His three children introduce him, and they are very good in the ad -- I would have thought they were professional actors.
The ad does a very good job of illustrating the real passion that Skelly has for energy issues. His kids point out that he talks about his energy-related ideas "all the time," and from what I've heard about this candidate, it's probably true. Green energy seems to be his real life passion. The ad highlights his success as a wind energy executive "powering more than one million homes" and mentions briefly the energy crisis, his plans for renewable energy, and experience creating green jobs.
The ad will appear both on broadcast tv and cable tv.
