Lamont Hires Bill Hillsman
There's a new face at Team Lamont.
Ned Lamont's campaign for U.S. Senate has parted ways with his media consultant, Ken Swopes & Associates, and hired a political ad man known for edgier, attention-getting commercials.
Bill Hillsman, whose clients have included Ralph Nader, the late Sen. Paul Wellstone of Minnesota and that state's wrestler-turned-governor, Jesse Ventura, is the campaign's new choice.
Samples of Hillsman's work can be found on his web site. Be sure to check out his ad for Jesse Ventura. Hillsman's work always grabs your attention. It doesn't have the look or feel of traditional political spots. I can't wait to see what they come up with. It should be a nice contrast to the commercials that the Lieberman campaign is running.
