WASHINGTON – Michael Baumgartner, who’s trying to unseat Democratic Sen. Maria Cantwell, released his first television ad today.

The Republican state senator uses the 30–second ad to call for an end to the war in Afghanistan and cutting the federal deficit.

The ad is titled “Change Can’t Wait” and touts Baumgartner’s diplomatic work in Iraq and Afghanistan

“Senator Baumgartner’s background in economics, business, and foreign affairs is powerful,” said Jami Herring, communications director for the Baumgartner campaign. “So when he highlights his priorities for the U.S. Senate – creating jobs, ending the war in Afghanistan – you know that he has the experience to get the job done.”­­­

The ad will run between now and the primary.
