Lt. Gov. Casey Cagle released another TV ad that once again has a positive message AND focuses on an issue. In an overly saturated and negative political ad season, it is good to hear (or see) a positive ad come across the airwaves.
The ad, like his first, focuses on College and Career academies and never mentions Connie Stokes, his Democratic opponent.
I am neither a pollster nor a pundit, but my gut tells me that Cagle will poll the highest percentage of any of the statewide candidates in two weeks. I think that he has the right type of message that will hopefully be emulated by future campaigns. Voters (and my younger children) are becoming very weary of all of the negative ads.
My transcription of the video can be found after the break.
Cagle: Students should be fighting to get into school, not fighting to get out.
