Tuesday Commentary: Two Campaign Ads

Today I’m taking a closer look at the two competing U.S. Senate campaign ads from Republican challenger Matt Rosendale and Democrat incumbent Jon Tester.

Tester’s ad was posted on YouTube May 8 and is titled, “Jon’s Got Our Back” As of this morning it has 1,257 views.

Rosendale’s ad was posted on YouTube May 13 and is titled, “Stepped In It.” As of this morning, it has 957 views.

Most of the time these ads follow each other on television.
