New Edwards Ad Sums Up Campaign

U.S. Rep. Chet Edwards, D-Waco, lays out his closing argument in his latest ad against Republican challenger Bill Flores. The spot revisits all of the incumbent's attacks against Flores from the past seven months — his alleged plan to privatize Social Security and veterans' health care, his supposed desire to kill the U.S. Department of Education and his meddling in the Baylor Big 12 fight. It concludes: "If Bill Flores wins, we all lose." The commercial starts running in Waco today.

Here's the full transcript:

With our local jobs, our families, our future at stake, where is Bill Flores?

Saying no, to a new hospital for Fort Hood heroes, and 2,000 new jobs.

On the sidelines, in Baylor's Big 12 fight. Killing the Department of Education, hurting our students and schools.

And privatizing Social Security and veterans' health care. If Bill Flores wins, we all lose.

Edwards: "I'm Chet Edwards. And I approve this message because there's so much at stake"
