From The McCain Campaign:
U.S. Senator John McCain's presidential campaign today released a new television ad, entitled "Guts," to run in New Hampshire. The new ad focuses on John McCain's long and often lonely fight against wasteful pork-barrel spending in Washington.
John McCain, named a "Taxpayer Hero" by Citizens Against Government Waste, has led the fight against wasteful spending his entire career. In one successful effort, John McCain saved the taxpayers up to $2 billion in wasteful and corrupt spending in the Boeing tanker deal. The Armed Forces Journal said McCain "virtually single-handedly killed" the Boeing tanker deal. McCain's investigation led to criminal convictions and exposed the largest Pentagon weapons scandal in 20 years.
McCain Communications Director Jill Hazelbaker stated, "All the candidates for president say they'll stop wasteful spending, but only one man has actually done it: John McCain."
Script for "Guts" (:30-TV)
ANNCR: When special interests and bureaucrats conspired to spend 30 billion of your tax dollars on a defense contract boondoggle, everyone looked the other way.
Everyone except one man.
One man has the experience to know it was wrong and the courage to stop it.
All the candidates for president say they'll stop wasteful spending.
One man has actually done it.
JOHN MCCAIN: I'll stop wasteful spending by Congress. Restore trust in government.
JOHN MCCAIN: I'm John McCain and I approve this message.
