(Rochester, MN) - Today, the Brian Davis for Congress campaign announced the release of its first television ad. The ad focuses on the issue of high gas prices and Congressman Tim Walz' lack of support for increasing domestic oil exploration and drilling. The campaign is running the ad across the First Congressional District from August 25 until the Primary Election on September 9th.

"As I've campaigned across southern Minnesota, I hear time and again that the high cost of gas and diesel fuel are at the top of the list of voters' concerns," said Davis. "It's clear that high fuel costs are undermining the health of our economy and that people are suffering. In the short time he's been in Congress, Mr. Walz has voted eleven times against an expansion of drilling or allowing Congress to even consider it for debate. He simply isn't getting the job done for residents of our District."

Brian Davis, the endorsed Republican candidate in Minnesota's First Congressional District faces a primary challenge on September 9th. He and his wife Lori live in Rochester where they are raising their four children.
