T.W. Shannon Releses First Ad in Oklahoma Senate Special

State Speaker T.W. Shannon, one of a handful of Republicans running for the Senate special election in Oklahoma, is up with his first television ad of the cycle, his campaign announced Wednesday.

The minute-long bio spot, which details Shannon's faith and his stance on lowering the debt, is backed by a $150,000 buy. It will run on broadcast stations in Oklahoma City and Tulsa, and statewide on cable stations.
