Tim Michels

Michels Hits the Airwaves

Ads Focus on Real Life Experience


Waukesha - Former Airborne Ranger, small business owner and Republican candidate for U.S. Senate, Tim Michels, will kick off a statewide television and radio campaign starting today. The first television ad highlights his twelve years as an Army Airborne Ranger and business background and features his wife Barbara and Mother Ruth Michels. "Tim really learned how to be a leader in the army something you don't just learn by sitting at a desk for 20 years," said Barbara.


The second ad features several Michels Construction employees who have worked with and have known Tim Michels nearly his entire life. "I don't consider Tim a politician right now, I consider him a businessman, and that's what we have to have to have, said Michels worker Rudy Schraufnagel," an Army Ranger himself.   "If he tells you he's gonna do something he's gonna do it, not just promise you things and then, you know, get elected and walk away from it," added Michels worker Pobe Behnke.


Additionally, the "Real Life Experience" radio ad is a 60 second spot focusing on Tim's biography and its relevance to the issue's important to people today.  "You know, the world has changed in twelve years.  We need a Senator who'll make the right decisions to grow our economy, and keep our families safe," says Michels.


The ads are the first statewide buy for the campaign and can be viewed at They will air in the Milwaukee, Green Bay, Madison, La Crosse, Eau Claire and Wausau markets.

We face great challenges in this nation.
To meet those challenges, it is important we have principled leaders like Republican Trent Franks in the United States Congress." -President George W. Bush

As your Representative in Washington, I will continue to fight so funds are made available allowing for retirement and disability payments to America's disabled veterans. Promises made to this nation's fighting men and women simply must be kept. I also pledge to stand for better pay for our servicemen and women, faster attention to their claims by the VA, and improved veterans health benefits -- including veterans health care facilities in Colorado, and across the country.

North Carolina's Congressman Vernon Robinson  to view his website 


The widows of our boys who were killed in action in Afghanistan or Iraq will receive only $982 a month in benefits. That is an outrage and those benefits must be dramatically increased.

When one considers that the relatives of each victim of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attack received millions in taxpayer dollars, the current policy for war widows is simply unconscionable.

I will also fight to make sure that we do more to keep our promise to take care of our disabled veterans

Jim Valdez, Candidate
Texas Senate District 26 to visit his website


My name is Jim Valdez, on November 14, 2003, I announced my intent to file for elective office for the 2004 Republican primary as a candidate for State Senator, Dist 26.  The basis in my seeking this office, currently held by Leticia Van de Putte, is to ensure strong effective representation for the district and most importantly restore integrity to the seat she now holds. 

My candidacy provides the opportunity for a fresh face that can work with both parties to accomplish the tasks that the citizens of Texas elect us to do; ensuring the economic prosperity of Texas with the creation of Jobs and providing an educational system within our State that is second to none.  

I humbly ask you for your support and look forward to serving you as your new State Senator.

Please vote in the General Election on November 2, 2004.

I am asking the voters of the 28th Congressional district to ask yourself the following questions:

  1. The only reason Henry Cuellar ran in our district is because he lost in 2002 to our good friend Henry Bonilla in the 23rd – Cuellar’s district. He knew he couldn’t win against Henry in 2004, so he ran against his good friend Ciro Rodriguez. Are we going to let him win in our district?
  2. Wouldn't we be better off in the district having a Republican from our district, on the majority team in Washington representing us?

I am the only candidate for the 28th Congressional district that actually lives in our Congressional District. My Laredo opponent lives in the 23rd Congressional district.

I need your help in the General Election November 2, 2004. Call your friends and ask them to vote for James F. (Jim) Hopson on election day, November 2, or during early voting, October 18 through October 26.
