Starting this morning, RuralVotes is airing a radio spot on four New Hampshire stations with a combined reach of some 640,000 listeners. The one-minute spot, titled “Facts,” sets out John McCain’s voting record on matters crucial to the wellbeing of America’s twelfth most rural state.

Backing up the ad’s assertions are a series of printable flyers in the RV website’s On the Record section – a powerful set of tools for New Hampshire residents who want their friends and neighbors to know who their political friends are – not. Facts in the flyers are indisputable; their source is the U.S. Senate’s database of roll call votes.

The McCain voting record spots can be heard on WNTK 99.7 and 106.5 FM, WUVR 1490 AM, WCNL 1010 AM, and WCFR 1480 AM and 96.3 FM.

You’ve heard the speeches, now it’s time to hear the facts.

Every five years, the farm bill comes up for reauthorization.

John McCain has a history of voting against the farm bill.

And this year he didn’t even bother to vote at all.

Why is this important to New Hampshire?

The Granite State is the nation’s 12th most rural state.

John McCain turned his back on agriculture research at the University of New Hampshire, farmland preservation, and providing locally-grown fruits and vegetables to school children.

He dropped the ball on expanding broadband, ignored our 69 farmers’ markets, offered no help to our dairy farmers and said no to getting behind new energy breakthroughs like Mascoma’s advanced cellulosic biofuels in Lebanon.

John McCain — he’s not voting for you.

  1. I like everything about the radio ad.  Makes me want to know how many farmers markets are in my state.
