The race for California’s 4th District is starting to heat up as State Sen. Tom McClintock rolls out his first radio ads. Here is the text, in case you’re not in the area:
“Liberals like Nancy Pelosi and Charlie Brown want to continue supporting federal laws that prevents us from tapping America’s vast oil resources. That’s how we got into this mess —and why gasoline prices are now breaking our family budgets,” McClintock says at the beginning of the one-minute spot.
“America has nearly a trillion barrels of recoverable oil—more than three times that of Saudi Arabia—that Democrats like Nancy Pelosi and Charlie Brown won’t even let us touch. In fact, more than 94 percent of our territory remains off-limits because of this foolish prohibition. If we want to change this policy, we’ve got to change this Congress,” McClintock says.
It’s a good start in what is shaping up to be a rough year for Congressional Republicans, even in a district that went 61% for President Bush in the 2004 presidential election.
