Republican U.S. Senate candidates Stace Nelson and Jason Ravnsborg have both unveiled new television ads this week.
Nelson's ad highlights conservative themes and his slogan, "Stand with Stace". The ad begins with veiled criticism of Mike Rounds and ends with Stace and supporters in front of Mitchell's Corn Palace.
Ravnsborg has two commercials. One is a longer bio with some background on Ravnsborg. The other is much lighter in nature and pokes fun at the pronunciation of Ravnsborg's last name. It's gimmicky, but the focus and reptition of his name (pronounced ROUNDS-burg) might give him the name recognition he needs.
