State Sen. Nichi Farnham, R-Bangor, who was targeted in August by the Senate Democratic Campaign Committee, has released a web ad.
The ad offers a positive look at Farnham, who was elected to District 32 in 2010, and highlights her preferred method of campaigning: Running.
The spot contrasts with the "Rubber Stamp" ad that hit Farnham and four other Republican senators for enabling Gov. Paul LePage's "extreme" policy agenda.
That Farnham deployed the ad underscores the belief among Democratic and Republican operatives that District 32 is a battleground seat. Farnham is facing Democrat Geoff Gratwick, a Bangor City Councilor who is well-known in the area.
