Wayne Hoffman, campaign spokesman for 1st District Rep. Bill Sali, confirms that the footage used in Sali’s new campaign ad – the incumbent’s first television spot of the campaign season, though his Democratic challenger, Walt Minnick, has been blanketing the airwaves for seven weeks – is the same footage Sali used in his campaign ads when he first ran two years ago, with different narration. “It’s good footage,” Hoffman said. “That’s no big deal.”
