In his latest ad, U.S. Rep. Chet Edwards attacks Republican challenger Bill Flores on his plan to privatize Social Security. The spot, which begins running in Waco today, refers to comments Flores made earlier this year saying, "People should be allowed to invest Social Security money in their own way."
The Waco Democrat has previously hammered Flores over what he cast as his plan to privatize veterans' health care.
Here's the full transcript:
Edwards: "I'm Chet Edwards, and I approve this message."
