In the first ad of his general election campaign against U.S. Rep. Chet Edwards, D-Waco, Bill Flores tells us he's a "businessman, not a politician" — and that means he knows jobs come from the private sector, not Washington government programs. The ad is running on network stations in Waco and Bryan-College Station.
Here's the script:
FLORES: “Democrats in Washington think new jobs come from government programs. But I know that they come from right here, in the private sector.”
ANNCR: “Bill Flores. He’s a businessman, not a politician. Bill helped build successful energy companies and created over 500 American jobs. Now Bill Flores is running for Congress.”
FLORES: “Washington is out of control and it’s time for Texans to stand up and stop them. I’m Bill Flores. I approve this message and I’d be honored to have your support.”
