A new Michele Bachmann television ad scheduled to run in Iowa focus on her objection to plans in Washington to raise the debt ceiling.
“I will not vote to increase the debt ceiling,” she says to start the 30-second ad. “It is completely contrary to common sense and how I grew up in Iowa.
In an email announcing the new ad, she makes a pitch for supporters to show up for the Aug. 13 Republican Straw Poll in Ames:
You can RSVP today to stand with me at the Ames Straw Poll next month. Upon RSVPing, you’ll receive a registration pass and all the details you need. If you need a ride to the event or could provide a ride to another member of Team Bachmann, we’ll help coordinate that, too.
