FIRST TELEVISION AD OF ATTORNEY GENERALíS RACE RELEASED BY KOSTER CAMPAIGN
Koster Ad up on Television Around the State Tomorrow
Jefferson City, MO Ė Chris Kosterís campaign for Attorney General today announced the release of the first television ad of the Attorney Generalís race. The thirty second ad, ďStanding up for Everyone,Ē will begin airing Monday, July 7th, in Kansas City and St. Louis, and is the start of an unprecedented statewide television campaign for a down-ballot race that will continue through the August 5th primary.
The ad highlights how Chris Kosterís ten years of experience as Cass County Prosecuting Attorney make him uniquely qualified to be Missouriís next Attorney General. The ad appeals to the strong desire of Missouri voters that their Attorney General not be a typical politician, but rather a prosecutor who is prepared to be the stateís next chief law enforcement officer.
Koster is the only candidate in the race, Democrat or Republican, with any prosecutorial experience. As Cass County Prosecuting Attorney, Koster amassed approximately 20 homicide convictions, two Supreme Court victories and thousands of felony convictions.
SCRIPT Ė ďStanding up for Everyone.Ē
KOSTER: You notice it the first time you enter the courtroom as a prosecutor.
You see the judge, and the jury, and the defendant. But who you really notice is who isnít there Ė the victim.
Thatís when you understand. Thatís when it really hits you. Youíre there to speak for people who canít speak for themselves.
When I stood up in front of a jury as Cass County Prosecutor, I was standing up for them. As Attorney General, Iíll be standing up for everyone.
Iím Chris Koster and Iím running for Attorney General of the State of Missouri.
