Kalk’s House campaign debuts first radio adFARGO – Republican-endorsed U.S. House candidate Brian Kalk is aiming to draw support from North Dakota radio listeners this week with the first ad of his campaign.
Kalk released the 30-second ad Wednesday, less than three weeks before the contested June 12 primary in which he’s being challenged by Republican Kevin Cramer.
“Our biggest challenges are the policies coming from D.C. We need a different kind of candidate if we want to get different results,” Kalk said in a statement about the ad’s debut. “It is important that voters get a chance to hear from me and learn about my background prior to casting their vote, and that’s what this radio ad does.”
Meanwhile, Cramer previously released two online ads for TV, emphasizing his background and conservatism.
The men, both Public Service commissioners, are seeking to distinguish themselves in the hopes of winning Republicans’ support June 12.
Whoever wins the primary will take on Democrat Pam Gulleson in November.
