US Vote 2010: Allen West political advertisement

A political advertisement by Allen West - Republican candidate for the US House of Representatives in Florida's 22nd congressional district - attempts to land a blow on Democrat Ron Klein by linking him to President Barack Obama.

In many elections, candidates seek the endorsement of a president. Mr West is gambling that in this year's US mid-term elections, establishing a connection between Congressman Klein and President Obama will lower Mr Klein's standing with Florida voters.
