Michigan Republican gubernatorial candidate Brian Calley is launching a campaign ad that will run for nearly three weeks on network and cable TV stations.
The 30-second ad begins airing Friday. It makes Calley, the state's lieutenant governor, the first Republican to buy ad time on broadcast TV - which has broader reach. Democrat Shri Thanedar also is airing ads.
Calley's ad shows him jogging through a town, with more people gradually joining in.
He says Michigan's conservative reforms have led to the creation of more than 500,000 jobs.
