gubernatorial election

  1. Is New Hampshire gubernatorial candidate Jackie Cilley’s “Pledge Zombie” ad the weirdest of 2012?

    In the ad, Cilley explains her reasoning for not taking New Hampshire’s “anti-tax pledge," describing other N.H. politicians as "zombies to the pledge."

    All the while, she casually defends her home from a horde of murderous zombies (Who are very rudely interrupting the filming of her campaign ad).  Perhaps the ad is meant to convey the cool, balanced leadership that Cilley would exhibit if such a zombie attack should take place.     

    Cilley, a former state senator, is in a tight race with Maggie Hassan for the Democratic nomination in New Hampshire.
