Bachmann ad: 'Someone needs to say no'

The Bachmann campaign released its third television ad today. It will air statewide in Iowa. In the ad, entitled “Believe It,” Bachmann stresses her votes against raising the debt ceiling. 

The ad is set on a street corner in Ames. Bachmann addresses the camera as music plays.   “Back in Washington,” Bachmann begins, “politicians are looting the Treasury and bankrupting our nation. And Barack Obama has driven our economy into a ditch.” 

Bachmann says she voted against raising the debt ceiling because “someone needs to say ‘no.’ ”

The ad ends with a plea to come to Ames for the straw poll.

Full text of the ad: “Back in Washington, politicians are looting the treasury and bankrupting our nation. And Barack Obama has driven our economy into a ditch. Someone needs to say ‘no.’ I voted against raising the debt limit because it’s time to balance the budget and pay down the debt. I mean it… and you can believe it. I’m Michele Bachmann, candidate for President, and I approve this message. Won’t you join me here in Ames for the Straw Poll, and let’s send a message to Washington.”
