Senate Candidates Addressing Veterans' Issues in TV Ads

Berkley's far from the only Senate candidate tackling the subject. Earlier this week, former New Mexico Republican Rep. Heather Wilson launched her first TV spot. The subject: Her third-generation Air Force background. Ohio Treasurer Josh Mandel, who is an Iraq War veteran, released a new ad on Monday featuring Marines who served with him. Mandel's military background is a major part of his campaign pitch. Even before bin Laden and the war in Afghanistan were back on the front pages of newspapers and leading evening newscasts once again, other Senate candidates and outside groups were also running ads about the military. In early April, Sen. Jon Tester, D-Mont., launched a round of ads touting his record on veterans' issues. In March, the group went up with a spot supporting Democratic Sen. Claire McCaskill in Missouri.
