Allen and former Virginia Gov. Tim Kaine (D) are locked in a tight Senate race, though Kaine has led by a few points in most recent public polls. The race likely will hinge on which candidate can win over the higher number of suburban female voters, and this ad, which is very similar to Allen's first ad released this summer, seems designed to do exactly that.
This is Allen's fourth new ad in as many days. Another touts his bipartisan work on veterans' issues, while two running in Southwest Virginia's conservative coal country tie Kaine to President Obama and criticize him on energy issues.
