Sen. Barack Obama has a new ad up on battleground state TV this morning — to run in the same 18 states Team Obama is targeting, a group that still includes Alaska.)



Here’s the ad, which focuses on his work with Senator Lugar on nuclear weapons:








And here’s the script:



BO at town hall: We are a beacon of light around the world.  At least that’s what we can be again.  That’s what we should be again

BO in interview: The single most important national security threat that we face

BO VO:…is nuclear weapons falling into the hands of terrorists

BO VO: What I did was reach out to Senator [Richard] Lugar, a Republican, to help lock down loose nuclear weapons

BO in interview: We have to lead the entire world to reduce that threat

BO at town hall: We can restore America’s leadership in the world

BO VO: I’m Barack Obama, and I approve this message.
