Ryan Taylor Must Not Be Raising A Lot Of Money
In his first television ad, liberal North Dakota gubernatorial candidate Ryan Taylor told us he wouldn’t be running a lot of television ads. Left unstated was the fact that he probably wasn’t going to be able to raise enough campaign funds to afford a lot of television advertising.
But he is keeping in touch with us voters via YouTube. A few weeks ago he released a video talking about his (almost certainly unconstitutional) property tax plan in which he spent more time talking about his cowboy hat than taxes. Now Taylor has released another ad that, while thankfully free of chin-wagging about hats, illustrates just what a low-rent sort of campaign Taylor is running.
The ad starts with some bullet points about Taylor’s property tax plan – mostly wealth redistribution in the form of tax credits for people who don’t pay the property tax – and then goes on to play a cherry-picked clip of Taylor’s opponent Jack Dalrymple responding to some question from talk radio host Scott Hennen the context of which isn’t played.
I guess the ad is supposed to suggest that Dalrymple doesn’t have a plan? It’s hard to say.
“I don’t get it,” one SAB reader emailed in response to seeing the ad by way of a Taylor campaign email. That about sums it up.Tags: election 2012, ellen chaffee, jack dalrymple, North Dakota News, property taxes, ryan taylor
