Collins airs new ad



U.S. Senate candidate LeRoy Collins will launch a second round of radio ads this week that will air until the Sept. 5 primary.

The 60-second ad touting Collins experience in the Navy is set to the song "Danger Zone" the theme from the movie Top Gun.

Here's the transcript:

I’m LeRoy Collins and I approve this message.

As a retired two-star Navy admiral I am uniquely qualified to address the global war on terrorism in the United States Senate.

I support the fair tax, a tough immigration policy including returning illegal immigrants to their home country, eliminating our dependence on Mid-East oil, and reducing Florida’s skyrocketing home insurance rates.

VO: LeRoy Collins a proven leader.

I have been endorsed by the Miami Herald, Tampa Tribune, Gainesville Sun, Naples Daily News, Florida Times Union, Lakeland Ledger, and the St. Petersburg Times.

VO: LeRoy Collins a proven leader.

I am the only candidate in this race with military and business experience and I ask for your support.  Don’t you agree we owe our children a brighter and safer future?

VO: LeRoy Collins a proven leader.  The only Republican candidate that can win the U.S. Senate race.

Unidentified female: She can’t win!

Paid for by the LeRoy Collins campaign
