Republicans attending the GOP convention in St. Paul may catch the following ad running on their hotel room TVs while they are channel surfing for Fox News convention highlights.
The ad went up Sunday evening on hotel-room networks where GOP delegates will be staying. According to the group, it’s spent about $40,000 so far.
The ad, set to the tune, “Thanks for the Memories,” uses footage of Katrina aftermath, home foreclosure signs, the infamous “Mission Accomplished” sign. There is talk of keeping the theme alive in subsequent ad executions that would include footage of former Attorney General Alberto Gonzales, former deputy chief of staff Karl Rove and vice president Dick Cheney.
