Montgomery, Al. (WSFA) -- A south Alabama businessman is airing a new radio ad, in his words to "retaliate" against Jay Love.
Ronnie Gilley says Love attacked him for no reason in a t-v- ad, accusing him of contributing to Smith's campaign with gambling money. Gilley says Love accused him of bringing Las Vegas style gambling to Alabama. That is something Gilley says he is not doing.
Now, Gilley has launched a new radio ad featuring singer, George Jones, bashing love. Gilley's ad is on stations in Montgomery, Dothan, and Enterprise.
This is the text version of the new radio ad:
"Hi, I'm George Jones. My wife Nancy and I are very proud to soon call the 2nd district our new home. What Nancy and I are not proud of are the outright nasty lies being aired by State Rep. Jay Love about our good friend Ronnie Gilley and Sen. Harri Anne Smith. Jay Love is just a plain old liar. Nancy and I feel strongly about our leaders being honest. Join me in telling Mr. Love to stop the lies and Washington politics. Alabama deserves better. I am Ronnie Gilley and I absolutely approve this message. One maverick way. Enterprise, Alabama 36330."
