Former Chief Judge and Congressional challenger Ann Callis today released her fifth television ad of the general election, "Difference." The ad highlights the accountability difference between Callis and her opponent, Congressman Rodney Davis. While Callis protected Illinois families as Judge by holding people accountable when they did wrong, Congressman Davis is trying to use false personal attacks on Callis to avoid being held accountable for reaping generous Congressional perks while shutting down the government. The ad also highlights how Congressman Davis is benefiting from negative mailers being sent by the Karl Rove-founded SuperPAC American Crossroads, which uses debunked claims to smear Judge Callis' name.

"Throughout my career as a judge in Illinois, I always fought to protect families by holding people accountable when they did wrong. Now I am holding my opponent accountable for using false attacks to distract voters from his record of receiving generous perks while shutting down the government. While Congressman Davis and his allies like Karl Rove push false attacks, I'm focused on helping families in Illinois who are falling further and further behind and need someone in Congress who wants to help them, not just help himself," 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.

CALLIS FOR CONGRESS, "Difference" Script:
As parents, we teach our children to do what's right. As a judge, I held people accountable when they did wrong.
That's the difference between Ann Callis and career politician Rodney Davis. While Davis and his friend Karl Rove use lies and personal attacks to try to cover up his record, Callis is holding Davis accountable for shutting down the government but keeping his congressional perks.
I'm Ann Callis I approve this message. I'll always do what's right for the middle class.
