New Ford Ad Shows He Understands Serious Issues

In his second television ad of the political season, Congressman Harold Ford Jr. once again demonstrates why he should be and will be the next U.S. Senator from Tennessee. In the ad, Ford, the five term Congressman from Memphis, stressed the importance for supporting our men and women in the workforce by helping them compete globally.

Ford went on to lay out key initiatives that he believes will help the American workforce compete better in the global community:
  • Having a better educational system (Read the Congressman's education plan)
  • On the job re-training
  • Fair trade policies (Read the Congressman's comments on CAFTA)
  • Supporting small businesses

Later Ford eluded that it will take a joint effort by government and business to get a grip on America's economic future and to make "America work, and keep Americans working."

In a time where many in Tennessee are struggling economically, Congressman Ford brings hope for a better future. He understands the hurdles that lie ahead and is ready to work towards real solutions that benefit the workforce of America.

While the other candidates running for U.S. run from the tough issues that face our state and nation, Congressman Ford once again shows that he is ready to take the bull by the horns and get things done.

Well done Congressman.
