Roraback touts ‘record of bipartisanship’ in first TV ad
Republican Andrew Roraback’s first general-election commercial in the 5th Congressional District talks about his “bipartisanship” and “independence and effectiveness.”
The piece is not exactly an embrace of the GOP House majority.
Roraback is seen meeting with various constituents while a voiceover promises that the House candidate will fight the gridlock in Washington, D.C.
Democrats, including his rival Elizabeth Esty, have tried to link GOP candidates to vice presidential hopeful Rep. Paul Ryan’s plan to turn Medicare into a voucher program. In his ad, Roraback promises to “protect and secure Medicare.”
The 5th District has been represented by Democrats and Republicans, but 40 percent of its voters are independents, who will likely decide the election. Many analysts consider the race to be a toss-up.
