PITTSBURGH- The Tom Smith for Senate Campaign today released a new television commercial titled "The Smith Plan." The thirty-second spot contrasts Smith’s successful job creating record, and his plan to ‘Restore the American Dream’ against Bob Casey’s record of passing zero bills in the U.S. Senate. The ad which will be aired across Pennsylvania beginning today can be viewed HERE.

"The Smith plan is a clear path to economic prosperity for our country," said Jim Conroy, Smith Campaign Manager. "This ad will serve as a reminder to Pennsylvania voters Tom has a successful record of creating jobs, balancing budgets, and planning for the future.

"In contrast, Senator zero, Bob Casey, has done nothing to address skyrocketing debt, out-of-control regulation, and stagnant unemployment," Conroy added.
