Here’s GOP U.S. Senate candidate Dan Sullivan’s new heart-wrenching 60 second ad. It features Wayne Woods of Palmer, whose son Shane died in Iraq in 2006 while serving in the Army. In a release, Sullivan’s campaign said that Woods approached Sullivan about making the ad “because I know he is the right man for the job, and this is the time when we need him most,” Woods is quoted in the release as saying.
Woods and Sullivan met shortly after Sullivan announced his candidacy and Woods has been a big supporter since. He attended a Veterans rally for Sullivan in March and told me then that he supported Sullivan because Sullivan shares his son’s values. It’s a line that he also uses in the ad.
