OMAHA—With the city’s primary election just over ten weeks away the first TV ad is off and running.
According to his campaign, on Tuesday (today) former City Council President Dan Welch, a Republican, is launching a 30 second commercial (see video below) touting “One Omaha united.”
Welch, who raised $270,000 in 2012, started the year with $230,000 in his campaign account.
In 1989, the last mayor’s race with a similar crowded field—there are five major candidates this year—P.J. Morgan hit the air early and partly credited the move to his eventual win.
It’s not clear when Welch’s opponents, which includes incumbent Mayor Jim Suttle, will begin their TV ads.
