Jim Himes Goes on the Air with First TV Ad

The Jim Himes for Congress campaign today unveiled their first television ad, viewable online at http://www.himesforcongress.com/jimmy. The biographical ad, entitled "Jimmy," introduces Jim to Connecticut voters through the recollections of those who know him best: the family, friends, mentors, and neighbors who played significant roles in Jim's childhood in a small town growing up in a middle-class family. The ad is currently airing on cable systems in Connecticut's Fourth Congressional district.

"Growing up in a middle class family in a small town, I know how hard work and opportunity can open doors for anyone," said Himes. "As I talk to voters around the district, I hear again and again their desire for a leader who will truly stand up for their priorities in Congress - fixing our economy, making sure healthcare and a quality education is available to all, and bringing our troops home from Iraq and reclaiming our nation's standing in the world."

People featured in the ad:

Bill Kop'Kash: Jim's childhood and high school friend. He owns his own landscaping business.
Judy Himes: Jim's mother. She was a single mom who raised Jim and his two sisters on her own.
Jane Vogel: Jim's High School English teacher and tennis coach. She has since retired.
Bob Stover: He and his wife were the Himes' neighbors when Jim was growing up. He is an electrician.
