Busi­ness­man Jay Sidie (D) re­leased his first ad slam­ming Rep. Kev­in Yo­der (R) as the “ar­chi­tect” of Kan­sas Gov. Sam Brown­back’s (R) edu­ca­tion budget cuts.

“Back to school is usu­ally an ex­cit­ing time for our fam­ily. But earli­er this year, I wasn’t sure if there’d be a school for my daugh­ters to go back to,” Sidie said in the spot. “I’m a small busi­ness­man, not a politi­cian. But I’d do any­thing to pro­tect my daugh­ters’ fu­ture.” (re­lease)

HIT­TING BACK. Yo­der’s cam­paign re­leased a new ad Wed­nes­day hit­ting Sidie for skip­ping “every school fund­ing vote here in Kan­sas, fail­ing to sup­port over half a bil­lion dol­lars in new in­vest­ments in our chil­dren’s fu­ture.” The ad lists elec­tions ran­ging from April 2001 to Janu­ary 2015 that the cam­paign says Sidie didn’t at­tend.

“When our kids’ schools were on the line, Sidie didn’t lift a fin­ger to vote,” a nar­rat­or says in the ad. (re­lease)
