Republican Sen. candidate Bart McLeay has launched his first televison commercial with a statewide ad buy in the neighborhood of $100,000. The spot debuted during NBC’s coverage of the Olympics, and will be running for the next few weeks.

Some blogs have panned the folksy commercial featuring McLeay’s family, but it’s a nice change from the typical political talking head, and the McLeay family shows a natural talent for delivering lines. Catch it on YouTube if you miss it on your small screen.

McLeay is an Omaha native, business lawyer and partner at the Omaha law firm of Kutak Rock. He played football for a year at the University of Arizona and graduated from the University of Virginia law school.

According to his campaign web site, he is pro-gun, pro-life and pro-flat tax. He supports limited government and cutting spending “back to basics and budget(ing) within our means.” He says he would replace Obamacare with a free-market-based alternative, which may pique your interest because the basis of Obamacare is having Americans buy insurance on the free market.
