Judithanne McLauchlan takes a slap at Tallahassee in her first web ad

Saying "Tallahassee's got it all wrong, " and "Jeff Brandes is part of the problem," SD22 Democratic candidate Judithanne McLauchlan released a web video on Tuesday that got a bit biographical before getting in a slam at her GOP opponent.
The race is certainly the most appealing from the perspective that it presents two solid candidates in a relatively swing-district, as SD 22 encompasses parts of Pinellas and Hillsborough County, and the seat was held by a Democrat (Charlie Justice) from 2006-2010, before Republicans have won the past two elections (In the case of 2012, Democrats didn't even field a candidate despite the relatively competitive landscape).
Currently Brandes is working on the people's business in Tallahassee, but he has promised to respond when "the time is right" as he told CL back in January. With his considerable financial resources, no doubt everybody will know it when he goes on air, or have you forgotten his ads about going to take "Tallahassee to the woodshed," which some thought ironic, as the state capitol has been controlled by Republicans for a decade and a half now.
