City Councilor Dan Lewis’ first ad of the mayoral runoff election attacks state Auditor Tim Keller’s record on public safety, but the Keller campaign is hitting back, accusing Lewis of reaching “into the dirty tricks playbook to falsify Keller’s record and distort the truth.”
The runoff election will be on Nov. 14.
Lewis’ 30-second television ad features a woman walking to her car at night as a hooded man appears to follow her.
“Tim Keller says he’ll keep us safe, but his record tells a different story,” a male voice says. “Keller voted to abolish the death penalty for child killers and rapists. Keller said no to laws that keep convicted sexual predators from living near their victims, and Keller won’t call out catch-and-release judges who dump violent criminals back on the street. Now, does Tim Keller make you feel safe?”
