Here's the transcript:
Coats pretty much has the Indiana Senate race in the bag, but this strikes me as a smart ad, one that other candidates might want want to copy. Some Republicans seem to only want to talk about the economy, which should obviously be the focus of their messaging, but perhaps not their only message. There are wildly unpopular Democratic positions on foreign policy (constitutional rights for foreign terrorists) and social policy (taxpayer-funding of abortion) that Republicans could effectively highlight. In 2006, the Democrats hammered Republicans on Iraq first and foremost, but that didn't stop them from talking about stem-cells and corruption.
