LAV launches Heavy TV-Ad Blitz - 500 GRPs - in Charlottesville Market

WASHINGTON, March 1 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- U.S. Congressman Tom Perriello is urged to vote "No" on the Obama-Pelosi government takeover of healthcare, in a major TV-ad campaign launched today by the League of American Voters (

The ads will initially run in the Charlottesville television market, a 500 GRP buy.

"Congressman Perriello, if you think you've got trouble now back home in your district, cast the deciding vote for Obamacare," said Bob Adams, executive director for the League of American Voters. "If you want to protect seniors from $500 billion in Medicare cuts, vote 'No'. If you want to stop job-killing tax increases on working families in the midst of the worst recession since the Great Depression, vote 'No'."

The script for the TV-ad, called "Stop Them Now Perriello!" reads:
