McCain Ad: Palin's Reform Credentials Exceed Obama's

The McCain campaign has released a new ad titled "Alaska Maverick" that favorably compares Sarah Palin's reform credentials to Barack Obama's.

"The Journal says: 'Governor Palin's credentials as an agent of reform exceed Barack Obama's,'" an announcer says in the spot. "They're right. She 'has a record of bi-partisan reform.' He's the Senate's 'most liberal. She 'took on the oil producers.' He gave big oil billions in subsidies and giveaways. She's 'earned a reputation as a reformer.' His reputation? Empty words."

The McCain campaign did not provide information on how often the spot will run or specifics on where it will air, saying only that it will appear "in key states."
