Vern Buchanan on Tuesday will begin running a television campaign commercial that touts his “blue collar background” and “can-do spirit” make him well suited to stand up for the American middle class, reports Marc R. Masferrer of Political Watch.

In the ad, the narrator does not get more specific than to say that in Congress, Buchanan “fights for lower taxes, a balanced budget, and incentives for small businesses to create good-paying jobs.”

Buchanan campaign manager Sally Tibbetts said the ad highlights Buchanan’s background as a businessman and a “problem solver.”

“Vern is fighting to change Washington’s broken system, not play petty partisan games like so many members of Congress from both sides of the aisle,” Tibbetts said. “He’s interested in results — paying down the debt, creating jobs, restoring America’s prosperity.”

The ad, the second spot Buchanan has produced for his campaign, is set to air on local over-the-air and cable channels, according to the campaign.

Buchanan’s Democratic challenger, Keith Fitzgerald, has yet to release a television ad.
