Virginia Republican George Allen is airing the first two television ads of his U.S. Senate campaign, focusing on women and independent voters, who could be crucial to his effort to take back the seat he lost six years ago..
 
In the 30-second spots, Chesterfield County Supervisor Dorothy Jaeckle and former Secretary of the Commonwealth Betsy Beamer describe Allen as a “good-natured” man and the “real deal” when it comes to caring about important issues, such as  education and the economy, and that have a tremendous impact on future generations.

“George Allen’s running for the Senate for the right reason,” Beamer says in one ad. “He wants to have a better future for our kids. And there is no better reason.”
Allen, a former governor and two-term senator who lost his seat to Democrat Jim Webb in the 2006 Senate race, is running against former Democratic Gov. Tim Kaine, who also hopes to succeed the retiring Webb.

So far, public opinion polls show both candidates running evenly with voters overall, according to the Richmond Times-Dispatch. But Allen is still trailing among women.

Allen is also getting help from outside groups, including GOP strategist Karl Rove’s Crossroads GPS and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, which are running ads across the state attacking Kaine.
