Memorable NC men rock from left to right in new ad


Associated Press Writer

RALEIGH, NC (AP) -- North Carolina's most sought-after swing voters are back on television. Republican Sen. Richard Burr began airing an ad Thursday featuring two memorable men in rocking chairs. It's the same two
talkers who starred in a nearly identical spot credited for helping Democratic Sen. Kay Hagan to victory in 2008.

One of the men starts the scene by saying, "Boy, we sure got it wrong last election." They complain about government spending and debt while a granddaughter worries that she's going to get stuck with the bill.

Burr's campaign plans to spend more than $300,000 airing the ad statewide, starting Thursday and going through the next two weeks.
