Senate race radio ad



U.S. Senate candidate LeRoy Collins will begin airing 60-second radio ads statewide for a week starting on Monday.

The ad, set to the song The Danger Zone from the movie Top Gun, takes a jab at frontrunner Katherine Harris and says that Collins' experience as a Navy admiral gives him the knowledge to deal with issues such as terrorism, immigration reform and taxes.

"Gov. Bush was right when he said that Katherine Harris can't win,'' a woman says in the ad. "All the polls show she can't beat the Democratic opponent. So why waste a good Republican vote on her?''

An audio version of the ad may be heard on the internet by accessing the campaign website
