Lampson Is First On TV In CD-14 With New Ad

"We can get so much more done when we work together." That's the message in the first TV ad from the Nick Lampson for Congress campaign. The moderate Democrat reflects on his bi-partisan Congressional accomplishments and suggests by returning to civility, "we are going to have a greater future - for America." According to the campaign, the ad is the first in the race to hit TV and will run in the Beaumont and Houston media markets from now until election day.

Earlier this week the Houston Chronicle highlighted the race as one of the few competitive congressional seats in Texas. The NRCC has named Randy Weber to its "Young Gun" program, a move it hopes will prompt increased fundraising for the Pearland Republican. The national Democrats have targeted this race since January with its Red to Blue campaign and were bolstered by internal polling that showed Lampson with positive name ID and a 4% edge.
