The New York Times has a piece today discussing John Thune's first television ad headlined "The Kids on the Trail." Excerpt:
Now John Thune, who is trying to unseat Senate Democratic Leader Tom Daschle in South Dakota, is getting into the act. Or at least his kids are. Mr. Thune's first television ad of the campaign features his two red-headed daughters, Brittany and Larissa, doing a teen riff on their dad, complete with an outtake when the girls giggle over a mispronunciation of ethanol.
"We just wanted you to know that we think our dad would make a really great senator," Larissa Thune says before the pair pokes a bit of fun at their father. Not exactly an independent endorsement, but apparently part of a trend in 2004.
