Morris And Holloway Are Up With TV Ads

The two major Republican opponents to Neil Riser in the special-election race for Louisiana’s 5th Congressional District, who are fighting it out for a chance to get into the runoff with Riser, are up on the air with ads this week.

Clyde Holloway’s ad came first…

A bit biographical, as one might expect given that Holloway is well-known in the district and he’s seeking to trade on that goodwill and name recognition.

But Jay Morris’ ad has a bit more juice to it…

Holloway apparently has an internal poll showing him with a 5-point lead over Riser. There is a Democrat poll out there which has Riser at 39, Holloway at 19 and Monroe mayor Jamie Mayo at 18.

The primary is set for October 19.
