Nine-term incumbent Democrat congressman Earl Pomeroy wants to introduce himself to his constituents:

Pomeroy’s closing argument: Next year, Republicans will “kill the farm bill, privatize Social Security, or take away the prescription drug benefit.” Apparently in Pomeroy’s world, Barack Obama will not have a veto, starting in January 2011.

I like the mournful, sad, long guitar chord in the background, a dirge for Pomeroy’s House career.

Rick Berg for North Dakota: Because he’ll never offer such a self-pitying ad.
