Bartoshevich stars in new ad, GOP press conference

Former Hillary Clinton supporter Deb Bartoshevich, who was booted as a delegate to the Democratic Nation Convention after she refused to pledge her support to Barack Obama, stars in a TV ad released today the John McCain campaign.

"I'm a proud Hillary Clinton Democrat," Bartoshevich says in the ad. "She had the experience and judgment to be President.

"Now, in a first for me, I'm supporting a Republican, John McCain. I respect his maverick and independent streak, and now he's the one with the experience and judgment.

"A lot of Democrats will vote McCain. It's okay, really!"

Bartoshevich is also joining McCain campaign adviser Carly Fiorina for a press conference this morning in Denver.

Democratic Party of Wisconsin chairman Joe Wineke said despite Bartoshevich's defection, a "vast majority" of Clinton supporters are strongly backing Obama.

"The reason is clear: John McCain is out of touch with the struggles of middle class and working families," Wineke wrote in an email. "Hillary supporters know that Barack Obama has a great plan to provide tax relief for 95% of Americans, and turn our economy around for all Americans, while John McCain offers four more years of George W. Bush's massive giveaways to the wealthy elite and corporate giants."
