David Freed airs first TV spot in state attorney general contest


HARRISBURG — David Freed, the Republican candidate for attorney general, has joined his opponent on the airwaves with less than two weeks before the election.

Freed's campaign began a statewide broadcast of his 30-second commercial Wednesday.

Freed, Cumberland County's district attorney, describes himself in the ad as "a tough, no-nonsense prosecutor" with 15 years' experience. He says voters should care about his track record because, if elected, he would be responsible for the safety of their families.

Democratic nominee Kathleen Kane, who was a Lackawanna County prosecutor for more than 12 years, put up her first TV commercial Monday. In it, she calls herself "a prosecutor, not a politician" and says she'll "clean up the corruption in Harrisburg."

Also seeking the office is Libertarian Party candidate Maraky Roger, a York lawyer.
