Republican U.S. Senate candidate Rand Paul is back in scrubs for his first TV ad of the fall campaign, declaring: "I'm a physician, not a career politician."

Paul is an eye surgeon. He trounced his GOP opponents in Kentucky's primary by running as a political outsider. Some political scientists say the approach could serve him well in the general election against Democrat Jack Conway.

The 30-second ad will begin airing on Wednesday and shows Paul intermittently in scrubs and a white physician's coat with the voice of a female narrator declaring that he always puts patients first.

It says that is why he opposes the federal health care reforms.

Campaign manager Jesse Benton called the ad buy "substantial" but declined to give a dollar figure. The Conway campaign estimated it at about $250,000.
