Battle of the Campaign Ads

The airwaves have now been invaded by governor TV ads. Here they are:

Jason Atkinson’s “Fixing Oregon” ads (the church land-use story is great!)
Kevin Mannix’s “Battle with Seattle” ad, a fresh new way to look at Oregon’s lost jobs.
Ron Saxton’s “Money’s Worth” ads where Saxton pledges to cut bureaucracy by 10%.
Ted Kulongoski: Sorry no ads (This guy is consistent with his missed opportunity and lackluster performance)
Jim Hill’s “Raise Taxes” Radio ads.
Pete Sorenson’s library of videos here.

OK greatest blogger minds of Oregon, please comment.

  • I think Ted Kulongoski died in office a couple of years ago and nobody noticed.

    He’s the ‘Weekend at Bernies’ candidate.

  • I haven’t seen any of these on television. Only on the web. But then, with Dish, I never really watch much in the way of “local” channels, so I have no clue what is airing and what isn’t. Unless they advertise on Fox News, the Food Channel, or any of the History/Discovery/et. al. channels, I’ll never see it.

    I wonder how many others are like me, and what the value of local TV ads are as a result?

    I’ve only seen the Saxton ad, and having produced a myriad of campaign ads in the past, it looks like run-of-the-mill-sit-in-a-boardroom-trying-to-look-decisive-talk-to-someone-wearing-a-hardhat kind of ad. Reduce overhead by 10%? Good luck. Saxton is saying the right things, but iI have the uncomfortable feeling that it’s only lip service.

  • Ads? What are ads?

    We have a DVR with our Dish.

    I like the Atkinson ad, and Mannix’s framing of jobs is interesting. Saxton’s ads are snorers and full of pledges he knows darned well he can’t keep. Hill’s just spooky; thank God I don’t have to see him!
