Sweet Home Alabama (Political Ad Style)

One of the most recognizable songs in the south is Sweet Home Alabama. The state that brought us this all American song is now bringing us a new breed of political ads.

Two unique tv ads have been released by candidates in Republican primaries in Alabama. The first ad received quite a bit of attention, and the second ad will almost certainly receive a lot of attention in the days to come. They both invoke the founding fathers, and channel a passion for liberty while using creative choreography.

The first ad is from Dale Peterson who ran an unsuccessful campaign for Alabama Agriculture Commission. The second ad is from Rick Barber who is running in a runoff for the congressional nomination in AL-2 on July 13th. Both these ads are for people who were endorsed by a new group called i Caucus.
