Trippi, McMahon & Squier
(to camera): I'm Howard Dean.
I'm running for President because the only way to beat George Bush is to stand up to him.
I opposed the war with Iraq when too many other Democrats supported it because I want a foreign policy consistent with American values.
I want to repeal the Bush tax cuts so we can make health care available for every American.
As Governor, I made sure that every child in my state had health insurance. We added jobs, we raised the minimum wage and we balanced budgets.
I'm Howard Dean and I approved this message because it's time to take our country back.

|Notes and Observations: James Pindell of PoliticsNH.com reported the Dean campaign ran this ad on WMUR-TV on August 6-11, "purchasing a total net of $45,989.25 in ads with a commission fee to Joe Trippi' firm of $8,115.75."|
