Congressional candidate Keith Crisco has launched a second round of TV ads, this one running through the week on broadcast channels in the Triangle and cable channels in the Triad.

The spot picks up on the jobs theme emphasizing the experience of the former state commerce secretary and retired textiles executive.

“An experienced leader who knows how to get the job done,” the narrator says. “He helped bring 120,000 jobs to our state.”

Crisco’s plan, if elected, would be to create more jobs, emphasize education, and protect Social Security and Medicare, the commercial says.

A campaign spokesman said the ad buy was in the tens of thousands of dollars.

Crisco, who lives in Asheboro, is running against former entertainer Clay Aiken, who lives near Cary, and Toni Morris, a professional counselor from Fayetteville to be the Democratic nominee for Republican Rep. Renee Ellmers’s seat in the 2nd Congressional District.
