DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - Democratic candidate for governor Jack Hatch is back on television with a new ad.

Hatch stopped airing television advertising in late September. Campaign spokesman John Hedgecoth says Monday that a new ad, titled “Fresh Start,” will run through Nov. 3 on Des Moines and Cedar Rapids television stations. He could not immediately say how much the campaign was spending on the ad buy.

Gov. Terry Branstad has held a sizable lead throughout the race, with more money and support than Hatch.

The latest campaign finance reports show Branstad raised $1.3 million between July 15 and Oct. 14 and had $1.3 million left in cash. Hatch raised nearly $880,000 and had about $280,000 on hand. Hatch and his wife have loaned $140,000 to his campaign.
