CHARLOTTESVILLE, VA – Today the Republican candidate for Virginia’s Fifth Congressional seat, State Senator Tom Garrett, launches his first round of TV ads heading into the November election.

Leading into the release of the new ad, Garrett issued the following statement:

“Since day one, our campaign has focused on the most pressing issues to constituents in our district – namely job creation, national security, and enforcing the rule of law. I am particularly excited about our ad because we were able to highlight my experience of creating jobs during my tenure in the Virginia Senate, serving abroad in our nation’s military, and prosecuting the worst criminals our society has to offer as Commonwealth’s Attorney. The people of Virginia’s Fifth District deserve a Representative with both the record and fortitude to advocate on their behalf – and this message demonstrates nothing less.”

Republican Tom Garrett and his Democratic opponent square off in their third general election debate tonight at the Batten School at UVA with doors opening at 5 PM. Event is open and free to the public.
