US Senate candidate Tom Leppert continues to move forward in his quest to get in a runoff with Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst. From the very beginning of the campaign until now, his team has remained positive and produced some outstanding videos. This one is no exception:
NEW TV AD: “Didn’t Do”
“How Did I Do It? Well, I Didn’t Call People Like My Opponents: A Career Politician And A Lawyer. And I Certainly Didn’t Call Barack Obama.”
DALLAS, Texas, April 11, 2012 – Texans for Tom Leppert today began airing the campaign’s third television ad which will be running in major media markets across the state including Houston, Dallas-Fort Worth, San Antonio and Austin.
The ad highlights Tom Leppert’s conservative leadership in the private sector, contrasting his experience with the backgrounds of his opponents—a career politician and government lawyer.
Leppert, a conservative businessman, has grown companies, balanced budgets and produced results for over 25 years. During Tom’s tenure as CEO of Turner Corporation, the largest general building company in America, Turner’s revenue more than doubled and Tom helped create 2,300 jobs. He has also served on the Board of Directors at the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and as Chairman of the Board of the Greater Dallas Chamber of Commerce.
As mayor of Dallas, Tom pursued an aggressive conservative economic agenda that helped grow the private sector and shrunk the size of city government. He launched the “Bold Move” initiative in 2009 that targeted out-of-state CEOs to relocate their companies to Dallas and take advantage of the city’s business-friendly climate. Under Tom’s leadership, the Dallas City Council also cut over 1,300 civilian government positions and eliminated or consolidated nearly one-third of the city’s government departments.
“Didn’t Do” TOM LEPPERT: As the only businessman in this race, I’ve created thousands of good jobs.How did I do it?
Well, I didn’t call people like my opponents: a career politician and a lawyer.
And I certainly didn’t call Barack Obama.
They don’t know how to create jobs.
But I do.
Let’s get government out of the way, so business can do what it does best: create growth and opportunity.
I’m conservative Tom Leppert, I approve this message because creating jobs…is my job.

If I were Lt. Gov. Dewhurst, I’d take exception to the “career politician” and the “they don’t know how to create jobs” lines but other than that, it is an accurate assessment of his competition. And I like the creative touch on the required “I approve” line.
Nicely done. I think that people are starting to take notice of the race and are beginning to see the clear differences between the top three candidates. It is going to get very interesting in a really short period of time.
