ARLINGTON, VA - Today, Bush-Cheney '04 released the campaign's newest ad, "Priorities." This ad is part of a dialogue with the American people that we will have in the weeks leading up to the Democrat convention about the priorities of America's families. John Kerry is trying to run away from the record that made him the most out of the mainstream member of the United States Senate. He began an "extreme makeover" last week on a bus trip when he declared that he understood the "conservative values that they feel" in the heartland. This ad reflects the true Kerry record.

President Bush: I'm George W. Bush and I approve this message.
Voice Over: Leadership means choosing priorities. While campaigning, John Kerry has missed over two thirds of all votes. Missed a vote to lower health-care costs by reducing frivolous lawsuits against doctors. Missed a vote to fund our troops in combat. Yet, Kerry found time to vote against the Laci Peterson law that protects pregnant women from violence. Kerry has his priorities. Are they yours?
