Dueling TV ads for Rep. Steve Southerland



Americans for Prosperity tomorrow will start airing this TV ad backing panhandle Rep. Steve Southerland in the fight against Obamacare. The ad, a "six-figure" buy, will run on broadcast and cable in Tallahassee and Panama City for three weeks, a spokesman said.

The ad follows one from House Majority PAC, a Democratic group, which said it will put an anti-Southerland ad on air in Tallahasse for two weeks at a cost of $70,000. It blamed Southerland for taking a hardline approach to Obamacare that led to the partial goverment shutdown.

See both ads below.
