Daines Releases First TV Ad of Senate Race

In first television spot of 2014 Senate race, Daines shares his story through a job interview with the people of Montana

Steve Daines today launched his campaign’s first television ad of the 2014 Senate race. The ad takes on the form of a job interview with the people of Montana—emphasizing that Montanans, not Washington, D.C. politicians, should be deciding who Montana’s next Senator should be.

In “Job Interview,” a one-minute ad that will be aired statewide and online, Daines shares his personal story with Montana voters and calls for “some Montana common sense” in Washington.

“I’m Steve Daines, and I spent 28 years in business growing companies and creating jobs. Running for office is really one big job interview, so here’s my story,” Daines states in the ad. “I’m running for the U.S. Senate because we need solutions, and Washington needs some Montana common sense.”

After sharing his Montana story, Daines also discusses his first bill, the “Balanced Budget Accountability Act,” which calls for Congress to pass a balanced budget, or members won’t get paid.

“As your Representative, I’ve been working to get our country back on track, fighting for more jobs and less government,” Daines adds. “My very first bill said this: if the folks in Washington don’t balance the budget, they don’t get paid.”

Full script:

I’m Steve Daines, and I spent 28 years in business growing companies and creating jobs.

Running for office is really one big job interview, so, here’s my story.

My father is a Marine and a small business owner in Bozeman. He instilled in me the importance of faith, family and accountability.

I worked construction to pay my way through Montana State, married Cindy and had four great kids.

In business, I helped RightNow Technologies create 400 new, good-paying Montana jobs. We did it by working hard, staying on budget and innovating.

As your Representative, I’ve been working to get our country back on track, fighting for more jobs and less government.

My very first bill said this: if the folks in Washington don’t balance the budget, they don’t get paid.

I’m Steve Daines and I approve this message and I’m running for the U.S. Senate because we need solutions, and Washington needs some Montana common sense.
