Byrne begins TV ads
The faith ad comes on the heels of comments by Byrne in the Press-Register about the Bible, which has caused some concerns about his candidacy among members of the religious community in the state.
"I believe there are parts of the Bible that are meant to be literally true and parts that are not," he was quoted saying in November.
Byrne has said he was misquoted and repeatedly emphasized his faith. The editor of the Press-Register has disputed that Byrne was misquoted.
Television advertising is expensive so some observers were surprised to see a candidate on the air so soon.
