This is not the John McCain we knew eight years ago."
MANCHESTER - Senator Obama's New Hampshire Campaign released a web ad today featuring Granite Staters who supported John McCain in 2000 and will be voting for Obama on November 4th, 2008. The ad features Mike Hill, former Republican Deputy Speaker of the New Hampshire House of Representatives, Barbara Pressly from Nashua, Kyril Mitchell, an Iraq War Veteran from Laconia, and Marge and Paul Bonneville from Tilton.
In the opening of the ad, Barbara Pressly from Nashua, who held a house party for McCain in 2000, addresses the changes she has seen in the candidate.
"The John McCain who came to my house and spoke to my neighbors in the back yard eight years ago, is not the John McCain that's here today," said Barbara
It also highlights Kyril Mitchell who is an Army Veteran from Laconia.
"John McCain has really shifted hard to the right. He represents the hard right of the Republican party now. He wants more of the same," Kyril said.
Marge and Paul Bonneville from Tilton appear in the ad saying, "They said he's you know, a maverick, but I just don't see that happening anymore."
Mike Hill, former Republican Deputy Speaker of the New Hampshire House of Representatives addresses McCain's ties to Bush's failed policies. "I don't think John McCain is going to bring change to Washington, I think John McCain is more of the same," Hill said.
The ad will be displayed prominently on the New Hampshire Obama Campaign website found at NH.BarackObama.com.
