The Democratic primary for governor of Indiana is tomorrow, so I thought you might want to get a sense of the race through the wonderful lens of campaign ads (Am I the only one with an insatiable appetite for campaign ads?).
The contest between architect Jim Schellinger and Jill Long Thompson, a former member of Congress, is expected to be tight. Some highlights from the ads: race cars crashing in a Long Thompson spot, Schellinger's wife mentioning her faith in God, a debate over the gas tax reminiscent of the presidential campaign and an argument over whether the wealthy candidate (Schellinger) or the "Washington" candidate (Long Thompson) is out of touch.
Two more ads are after the jump.
