Business owner, Marine veteran and progressive democrat, Carl Sheeler, announced a series of ads that will share many firsts. The initial one will be launched on most RI Channels during the weekend of July 29.

What's unique iabout Sheeler’s ad is that it is entirely produced by a 15 year old from rural Alabama, Ava Lowery, who hosts the website http://www.peacetakescourage.com.

Ms. Lowery interviewed and endorsed Sheeler’s Rhode Island US Senate bid. Her support was due in part to Sheeler’s positive and bold vision. Like Sheeler, Ms. Lowery wants our troops home now and is opposed to President Bush’s exceeding his executive authority.

Ms. Lowery has crafted dozens of vivid and emotional videos viewed internationally from her website earning attention by CNN, New York Times and Daily Kos.

The television ad has no spoken commentary and is entirely music and visual with images including a flag waving at Arlington cemetery and Sheeler standing with Rhode Island’s oldest living Marine (91) and youngest women Marines (19). It may be viewed at Sheeler’s US Senate home page http://www.carlsheeler.com.

Sheeler is considered the likeable, articulate underdog in a September 12 Democratic primary against better funded, patrician Sheldon Whitehouse. Sheeler stated, “Our kids should believe we can make a difference in our communities and create a better planet in ten years. It is critical to see the world from the purity of our youth’s perspective, not DC advisors building up their limousine liberal candidates with expensive media buys and plastic messages.”
