Former Chief Judge and Congressional challenger Ann Callis today released her fourth television ad of the general election, "Deserve." Building on Callis' initial introduction to voters, the ad focuses on her pragmatic leadership as Judge in Madison County, where she spearheaded major bipartisan initiatives like establishing the first Veterans' Court in Illinois to help troubled veterans get back on their feet. The ad also highlights Callis' personal commitment to help military families as the proud mother of an Army Ranger who returned this summer from a tour in Kuwait.

"People across our district are frustrated with Washington politicians like Congressman Davis who are more interested in political games, serving lobbyists, and protecting generous Congressional perks than helping their constituents. As Judge in Madison County, my only concern was serving the people of our community, which is why I built coalitions and launched initiatives like the first Veterans' Court in Illinois. This election is about values, and I'll always put first those who are struggling -- from veterans to seniors -- because they deserve nothing less from their representative," said Callis.
A proven judicial reformer, Callis has made reforming Washington a central focus of her campaign, launching her Congressional Reform Agenda in response to Congressman Davis' continued defense of taxpayer-funded perks, lobbyists on his payroll, and the "do nothing Congress."
The ad will begin airing in Illinois' Thirteenth District today. You can find more information on Ann's record and values here: www.CallisForIllinois.com.
The ad's script is below:
CALLIS FOR CONGRESS, "Deserve" Script:
(CALLIS): Back home and alive, it's all we ask for, but it's not all they deserve. As a Judge, when I saw veterans in legal trouble, I created the state's first Veterans' Court to help them get treatment and get back on their feet. In Washington, I'll always support military families and help veterans make the transition home, not just as your Congresswoman, but as a proud Army mom. I'm Ann Callis, and I approve this message.
