Bill Shuster Begins Major TV Ad Campaign
Pennsylvania Rep. Bill Shuster is leaving nothing to chance in his campaign for a seventh full term.
The House Transportation and Infrastructure chairman is going up Friday with a monthlong, $400,000 TV ad campaign ahead of the Keystone State’s May 20 Republican primary.
The spot will be on broadcast in the Altoona/Johnstown market, along with cable throughout the rest of the 9th District.
Early on this cycle, Shuster’s re-election bid seemed to be on shaky ground, thanks to a primary challenge from retired Coast Guard Capt. Art Halvorson. Halvorson is running as a tea party candidate and had the potential to earn outside group help.
