Ron Barber has new taken out a new television ad, titled "Flying."
The 30-second ad discusses the Tucson Democrat's fight to keep the A-10 flying, even his willingness to cross political lines to find support in Congress.
The new ad will air on network TV.
Text of the ad:
"My name is Maureen Phillips. I worked as a tactical intelligence officer in support of A-10 missions. The A-10 is irreplaceable and it saves lives. No one has worked harder to save the A-10 aircraft than Ron Barber.
He immediately said 'this is not about Republican or Democrat.' He has taken on his own party and worked across the aisle to save the A-10. Ron Barber does what is right for southern Arizona."
(Ron Barber, speaking)
"I am Ron Barber and I approve this message."
