Rep. Howard Berman has begun running two cable TV campaign ads, the first since the primary election, in his bruising battle with fellow Democratic Rep. Brad Sherman.
Unlike the increasing vitriol spilled on both sides as the two House veterans compete for the same San Fernando Valley congressional seat this fall, the tone of the Berman ads is purely positive.
One touts his achievements for Valley constituents and others. The other outlines the help he gave a grieving father in interviewing his son’s combat unit in Iraq, where the son was killed. The father, identified as Darrell Griffin Sr., wanted to finish a book he had begun with his son.
