Weatherford ad: lots of family, no Florida House

State Rep. Will Weatherford has released ads for his re-election, and the Wesley Chapel Republican includes his family of quarterbacks in the productions. Weatherford, an end at Jacksonville University, notes that the "first thing I learned in my family is don't drop the ball, but government, they've been doing a lot of that these days."

They? The ads don't mention Weatherford is in the House, nor that he's in line to be Speaker in 2012. He's seeking his third term. Weatherford, however, has included his elected title in previous ads.
