A freeze frame from the Ed Perlmutter ad that debuts on Thursday, July 13, 2006. The ad also features his daughter Alexis, 25, who has epilepsy. (FOR THE NEWS) Democrat Ed Perlmutter debuted his first television ad Thursday in a move aimed at giving the congressional hopeful the name recognition he’ll need to win the Aug. 8 primary. The ad buy signaled that Perlmutter and Democrats Peggy Lamm and Herb Rubenstein are heading into the home stretch in their battle to see who will face Republican Rick O’Donnell on the November ballot. Rubenstein, the underdog among the candidates, took out the first television ad of the race last week, with a spot voicing his opposition to the war in Iraq. The suburban Denver district is widely considered a toss-up now that Republican Bob Beauprez is leaving the office to run for governor. Perlmutter’s ad focuses on the former state senator’s support of stem cell research. He appears in it with his oldest daughter, Alexis, 25, who has epilepsy. The 30-second spot calls on president Bush and congressional Republicans to stop blocking a branch of research that could benefit millions who suffer from diseases like epilepsy, Alzheimer’s, diabetes and Parkinson’s.
