Republican Congressional District 2 candidate Shelley Kais has released her first ad in the week before the GOP primary.

The small business owner says CD2 needs a financial analyst that can tackle out-of-control spending in Washington and help to fix the national economy.

The 30-second ad will run on cable television.  

Text of the ad:

(Narrator, speaking)

“Who should you send to Congress?”

(Shelley Kais, speaking)

"My experience as a federal financial analyst means I can tackle out-of-control spending in Washington. It is about putting people back to work and getting our economy rolling again. It is about securing our border and it is about our national security. 

I will take your message to Washington because southern Arizona needs a voice and a leader in Congress.

I am Shelley Kais and I approve this message."
