Call Him What?

You gotta love this ad.

"I'm going to Congress to help stop him from destroying our nation," House candidate Les Phillip says in the ad. "And they're not going to call ME a racist." Les Phillip is running against Parker Griffith, who was elected as a Democrat in 2008 and who switched to the Republican party in December. Since the local Republicans aren’t warming up to him quite as fast as he would like, Griffith aims to avoid a runoff. Alabama’s primary is June 1.
Phillip is in a great position to make a splash with this sort of ad. He served 12 years in the military after migrating from Trinidad. This is his first run for office. We'll have to wait and see if he's anything more than a great bomb thrower.
