Michigan Republican Places Ad in Race to Replace Dave Camp

Michigan Republican Paul Mitchell will go on the air Tuesday with a positive TV ad in his bid to replace retiring GOP Rep. Dave Camp. The bio spot shows Mitchell both in a suit in an office, as well as outdoors in flannel and boots, with a couple shots of waving American flags. He is one of a few Republicans running in the Aug. 5 primary for Michigan's 4th District, located in the central part of the state. "This is Paul Mitchell, conservative working for our America," the male narrator says. http://youtu.be/jMbmjy2wx4s The cable and online ad will begin on Tuesday and run for 12 days. The campaign will put six figures behind it, according to a Mitchell source. Camp announced his retirement late last month. The race is rated Safe Republican by Rothenberg Political Report/Roll Call.
