CINCINNATI (TDB) -- Democratic congressional candidate Steve Black has a minute-long campaign jingle that you can hear by clicking this link. It's called "Backin' Black" and begins airing this week on rural radio stations in Ohio's 2nd Congressional District. The lyrics knock lightweight politicians who "vote just like a buttlerfly and sting like a daisy." No names are mentioned. It also ties into 2008's top campaign themes: The jingle says he'll keep jobs at home and bring the soldiers back from Iraq.
Black is competing against Vic Wulsin for the OH-02 Dem nomination. Last week, she released Wulsin Girl, which delivered a splash on YouTUBE. The music video was written and performed by Ann Driscoll, a former Wulsin volunteer. Black's campaign manager, Dan Herkert, said the radio jingle was created by the campaign's advertising operation and was paid for by the campaign.
