Byrne begins TV ads

Republican Bradley Byrne is the first candidate to hit the TV airwaves with ads during the 2010 race for governor. He has ads focused on his faith and on his fight against "Paul Hubbert and the AEA" when he was chancellor of the state's two-year college system. People can view the ads at:

The ads began airing this week and are available on his Web site,

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.

I don't know how you can be misquoted when you write the answers rather than responding the way he was supposed to by saying "yes" or "no"... also can't believe he is going after teachers this early.

If you’re going to comment, you should, at least, attempt to know the facts, or read the article. If it was "just a yes or no question" why were there long quoted and paraphrased comments from Byrne and the other candidates? Byrne clearly said he believed every word of the bible is true. The Press-Register even printed a follow up to help clarify that point. It’s pretty obvious you’re just spouting off some other candidate’s talking points … take a minute and look into the facts that the other candidate’s don’t want you to know.
